A delightful book featuring vintage Steiff animals to help children learn their ABC’s!
Sassafrass Jones & Her Forever Friends ABC’s uses bright colours, playful words, and bold images to help youngsters learn the alphabet in the most memorable way possible.
Each letter comes to life through a charming photo, happy poem, and brief history of the Steiff animal illustrated. And, to give the lessons an international flavour, the name of each animal is provided in English, French, Spanish, German, Chinese, and Japanese.
This book was authored by Cathleen Smith Bresciani and Rebekah Kaufman, Consultant Steiff Archivist in North America.
The two met at a book launch in New York in 2013, and immediately realized that they shared much in common - including Steiff, dogs, and a passion for raising money for charity.
Cathleen and Rebekah worked together to create this book, with Cathleen focusing on the illustrations and Rebekah authoring the words and poetry.
Cathleen and Rebekah are both delighted with the results of the collaboration and have plans to create an entire series of "Sassafrass" themed books and complementary accessories.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this ABC book will be donated to non-profit organizations.
