“Everyone likes birds. What wild creature is more accessible to our eyes and ears,
as close to us and everyone in the world, as universal as a bird?”
– David Attenborough

LETTERS OF LOVE: from A to Z, with Words and Birds for your Children is a unique alphabet book with words that every child is happy to hear. Illustrated by magnificent and whimsical bird photographs, each letter in the alphabet is accompanied by a sentiment to let children know that they are specially loved and cherished.

LETTERS OF LOVE FROM A to Z is a gift to tell the special child in your life, how much you care about them – 26 times. Beginning with A is for Always, there is a letter for every expression of love, like:

• A is for ALWAYS: I will always love you.
• O is for OUTSTANDING: You are outstanding.
• S is for SAME: I love you the same when you do something brilliant, or when you don’t.

Each bird photograph illustrates the supportive words for each letter of the alphabet.

LETTERS OF LOVE was written and designed by Amy Saypol Tompkins, award winning former ad executive. She has lived on Amelia Island, FL for the past twelve years. Originally from New York City, she has a passion for the outdoors, birding, and nature, and has been writing about these topics for as long as she can remember. Saypol-Tompklins leads discussion groups and nature walks encompassing all of her studies and sharing her experiences.

Most all the birds in LETTERS OF LOVE are native to Amelia Island, FL. Sandy Malcolm, who has lived on the Island her whole life, is an award winning, wildlife photographer. Her passion for nature and creatures has translated into a love for capturing extraordinary images, while birding, kayaking, and adventuring.

LETTERS OF LOVE: From A to Z, With Words and Birds for Your Children is the second in a series of alphabet books filled with universal loving sentiments. When referring to love, Tompkins wrote: “I know one truth. It becomes real when you say it.”
