Artist Ida Pearle gives readers a way to play for every letter in the alphabet. A is for act--curtains up! B is for blow--pinwheel ready! And C is for catch--butterflies beware! Ida's cut-paper collages are the perfect mix of vintage and modern, comfort and inspiration. Her images of children--on tiptoe, on a zebra, dancing, and jumping--are full of grace and flow. And her distinctive patterns and striking designs spring from page to page. Perfect for both children and adults, this extraordinary alphabet book will add a dash of whimsy and style toany bookshelf.

This book is an excellent tool to help young children learn their alphabet. Each page has a letter and word that begins with letter and is accompanied by a unique work of art done in cut-paper collage. The illustrations add an element of fun to the story and children will respond really well to it. Read full review

Each word of the alphabet is shown with a picture and a word matching it. For example: E is eat. So it shows someone eating. This is a wonderful tool to teach those youngsters their alphabet. Read full review
