"This remarkable bird's-eye...view of the planet...lets readers see Earth--and the alphabet--in a new light." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Look up! Does that cloud look like an animal? Do the stars form a circle in the sky? But have you ever wondered what our world looks like from space? Discover the alphabet in an all-new way with this clever picture book filled with unaltered images of Earth from space.

In this ingenious alphabet book, scientist and writer Adam Voiland takes us on a journey of our planet from afar. And you might be very surprised at what you see. Could that river form an A? Could those clouds form a B? These awe-inspiring and unaltered images of Earth from above showcase the diversity and beauty of our amazing planet in a special and unique way.

From A to Z, ABCs from Space is a rare opportunity to see Earth like you could never have imagined. And as you go through the book, play a guessing game of where and what the letters might be and then find the answers in the detailed descriptions in the back of the book along with information about the science of space.
