As soft April showers make our hearts sing, lets find the sweetness of Gods gentle spring. Discover both Gods world and the alphabet through the refreshing newness of springtime experiences.

From the first April shower to flying kites and playing in puddles, young readers will delight in the uplifting seasonal message and will grow in their appreciation of the spring season and the miracle of new beginnings.
Artist and designer Kim Gatto strives to create wonderful images that anyone of any age can enjoy. Illustrating is her passion and she savors every opportunity she gets to pursue her dream. "Regardless of what your specific goals and aspirations are, the pursuit of doing what you love for a living will likely be a challenge, however, getting there is priceless." Inspired by nature, animals, and children, Kim has worked on many educational projects, but "B is for Bunnies" will be her first Picture Book. Kim lives in New Jersey, with her husband Michael and three kitties: Choco, Skittle, and Charlie. In 2008, they are also expecting a new addition to their family, their first child.
Christine M. Irvin4 Stars Out Of 5An alphabet book about a God-created worldJanuary 2, 2011Christine M. IrvinQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4K Is for Kite: God's Springtime Alphabet, written by Kathy-jo Wargin, is a picture book that illustrates each letter of the alphabet with something relating to springtime and to the concept of a world made by God. The author provides both a word and a short poem for each letter.
For instance, the letter "F" is for "Feast." The accompanying text reads: "With family and friends we will Feast as we should. We're thankful to God who gives all that is good."
Each letter is used in this manner, even the tricky letter "Q," which in this case is for "Quack."
Although the people represented in the painted illustrations by Kim Gatto look a bit stilted and stiff, the bright, bold colors used throughout the book will be sure to please young and old alike.
What I Like: I like the bright colors used in the illustrations. And, even though I'm not a big fan of rhyming text, this one is done very well.
What I Dislike: The only thing I would add is a Bible reference of some kind for the text.
Overall Rating: Very good.
