Many people collect alphabet books. Librarians and teachers love them because they are an effective way to teach children culture, facts, history, and the rhythym of language. I dedicate the Scottish Alphabet children’s picture book in this way: “To the children of Scotland, wherever God has placed you.”

My artist is Connie McLennan, a freelance illustrator. She is a member of the San Francisco Society of Illustrators, the Northwest Air Force Artists, and the Picture Book Artists Association. She has won awards from both the San Francisco Society of Illustrators and the Sacramento Ad Club. She is also a founding member of OASES, a parent advocacy group for children with special needs. McLennan creates and sells “daily paintings” via her painting blog and through eBay.Here is another sample of her artwork in this book:
