9780140558760: The Handmade Alphabet (Picture Puffin Books)

Gorgeous pencil illustrations of diverse human hands male and female, young and old signing the letters of the alphabet make this alphabet book an incredible learning resource. The entries are further supplemented with objects that begin with the same letter. Author Laura Rankin was inspired to create this book by her deaf stepson. It is a wonderful introduction to the alphabet and to sign language, and the art is beautiful enough to merit sharing it with adults as well.
