A French Quarter Alphabet by Christine Achille Gunter is a colorful book that captures the beauty of New Orleans’ French Quarter in alphabetical order. The beautiful verses and watercolor paintings will captivate readers as they flip through the pages. The author not only teaches the alphabet to young readers, but also introduces them to a lot of new and interesting things descriptively through her words and paintings. The book is unique, well executed and different, and does not list the usual things that are mentioned while teaching the alphabet to readers. Instead, she introduces them to the best of things in the French Quarter in New Orleans and what a treat it is for readers!
The book stands out for its uniqueness and is educational as well as informative. Adults will also find some interesting things to enhance their knowledge about what is found in the French Quarter of New Orleans. The watercolor paintings do full justice to the author’s words and what she is trying to convey with clarity and precision. The book is good for bedtime storytelling and parents can teach their kids a whole lot of new things apart from the alphabet. It can be used for read aloud sessions too as children will benefit in many ways. The book is not only about teaching the alphabet; it can also be used as a travel reference for all those traveling to New Orleans for the first time. It captures the essence, sights, and sounds of the place beautifully.
