Format: Hardcover
Through music, the family bonded strongly together. "V is for von Trapp: A Musical Family Alphabet" tells the story of the von Trapp family through an alphabet book format. There story brought them to America from the invasion of Nazi Germany in the 1930s where they served as the inspiration for the famed sound of Music. "V is for von Trapp" is beautifully illustrated by Linda Graves, making for a delightful picturebook with a moving story and history.

Got this for my 4 nieces for Christmas after they watched "The Sound of Music" and loved it! Illustrations were BEAUTIFUL! The rhyming scheme and Alphabet focus was great for the younger girls, and the more detailed history on the side columns of the pages appealed more to the older girls. Was very pleased with this purchase. :)

This book gives the full story of the Von Trapp Family singers. The simple verses are good for young children and older ones can learn from the historical notes on each page. The illustrations are charming.
