by Leo Lionni

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.
