Animal ABC’s Picture Book

Animal ABC’s is picture book work-in-progress collaboration with singer-songwriter Brian Vogan. His words, my illustration. Read (or sing!) along as we make our way through the alphabet from A to Z. All illustrations are made from recycled magazines and junk mail because trees are for monkeys and squirrels! Look closely and you’ll find lots of little surprises like buttons, baskets, marbles, spoons and more.

J is for Jackrabbit


A is for antelope
B is for buffalo
C is for caterpillar
D is for dingo
E is for elephant
F is for frog
And G is for guinea pig


H is for hippo
I is iguana
J is for jackrabbit
K is koala
L is for lion
M is for moose
And N is for nutria


O is for ostrich
P is for penguin
Q is for quail
R is for raven
S is for salmon
T is for trout
And U is for unicorn


V is for vulture
Circles in the sky
W a whale
Twenty feet wide
X doesn’t have one
Y is for yak
And Z is for zebra
