An abecedarian tribute to the historical city, D Is for Drums: A Colonial Williamsburg ABC by Kay Chorao brims with period-influenced artwork and historically appropriate vocabulary (starting with ""A is for Apothecary shop""). In the corner of each spread, children bend their bodies to form each letter; the overall effect is one of finding a cherished primer from a bygone era.
