Katie’s A Tae Z: An Alphabet for Wee Folk
By (author) James Robertson; Illustrated by Karen Sutherland
New from Itchy Coo! KATIE’S A tae Z is the eighth in the KATIE series, following the bestselling success of KATIE’S COO, KATIE’S MOOSE, KATIE’S FERM, KATIE’S BEASTIES, KATIE’S YEAR, KATIE’S ZOO and KATIE’S PAIRTY. This new book is aimed at very young children and is the simplest and easiest introduction to Scots words with Karen Sutherland’s cheerful and engaging pictures to go with them. On each of the thirteen spreads KATIE introduces two things or animals: one word and one image for each. For example, A is AIPPLE, D is DUG, M is MOOSE, P is PUDDOCK. KATIE’S A tae Z should prove a brilliant introduction to all the other KATIE books.
