Title: The Alphabet Tree

Author: Leo Lionni

KDL Description:

E LIONNI

After a storm blows some of them away, the letters on the alphabet tree learn from a strange bug to be stronger by forming words, then a caterpillar comes along and tells them that words are not enough; they must say something important.

Amazon Description:

When a fierce wind threatens to blow all the little letters out of the alphabet tree, they must band together in words—and then sentences—to create a message that’s even stronger than the wind: peace on earth. With their newfound knowledge, there’s nothing the letters can’t do in this gentle parable about the power of the written word.
