Leo Lionni Animal Alphabet: 24-Piece Puzzle
This puzzle for ages 3 and up features some of the most endearing characters created by Leo Lionni—the frogs, dragonflies, mice, and bunnies that young readers will recognize from his richly illustrated picture books. Swimmy, Frederick, Alexander, and more make the alphabet fun and accessible.
Leo Lionni wrote and illustrated more than 40 highly acclaimed children’s books. He launched his career as an author and illustrator in 1959 with Little Blue & Little Yellow, inspired by a story he had improvised on the spot to entertain his young grandchildren during a long train ride. He was a four-time Caldecott Honor Winner and his signature style of bold colors and nature-inspired collages accompanied by toddler-friendly tales has won him a cherished spot in the hearts of children of all ages throughout the world.
Another reason we love this item: it is printed, cut, and boxed in the USA. The puzzle is a quality product made locally by workers making a living wage and the manufacturer makes every effort to be environmentally responsible: the shrink wrap is recyclable, the chipboard is recycled, the printing is done with soy inks, and the bag that holds the puzzle pieces inside the box is made from biodegradable plastic. The company is a member of 1% for the Planet: 1% of the sale of each puzzle is pledged to that environmental non-profit.
