vintage 'a peaceable kingdom' shaker alphabet book
the shaker abecedarius, delightfully illustrated with
paintings by alice and martin provensen.
the rhyme and meter of this alphabet verse helps
children enjoy learning to read.
a shaker education was simple and practical, encouraging
children to become active members in the community.
despite their strict, sober behaviour, shakers loved song,
dance and mime. this whimsical and appealing book is
evidence of their belief in the importance of fun learning.
