Book review: B is for Bear- A Natural Alphabet

*Disclosure: I received this book to review for myself. I was not compensated in any other way and all opinions posted here are mine and  mine alone. 

When a package containing a book arrived in the mail, my daughter, Vivian, opened it and immediately exclaimed "It's like the book S is for Salmon!" She remembered that, despite not having looked at S is for Salmon recently, because these books are so uniquely beautiful that they make a real impression! This book is just as wonderful as its predecessor. Here's a bit about the book, B is for Bear, from the publisher's website:

A is for Acorn; B is for Bear; C is for Cloud. Celebrated paper artist Hannah Viano has created this beautiful alphabet book that will appeal to children as well as adults. The flora, fauna, and landscape elements in this book are found throughout North America, so readers around the country will connect with Viano's gorgeous art and text that are both scientific and poetic.
I love these books- the art is so pretty and the text is also great. My kids enjoy learning about nature while also admiring the pictures. My favorite page is the one covering the letter Z... I wont spoil it for you, but the art is so great that I want to frame it and look at it all the time. I cannot recommend this book highly enough- it's out today, October 13. Go get it!
