9780152065522: A Child's Day: An Alphabet of Play

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.

Review:

"Ida Pearle''s artwork captures the joy, curiosity, wonder and delight in childhood. And considering that she works almost exclusively in cut paper and silhouettes, we can only marvel at her gifts. It''s not surprising to learn that Ida Pearle is also a gifted musician. You can almost see the music moving through her pictures. I''m thrilled with her first book, A Child''s Day, and look forward to many more from this gifted artist."-Brian Selznick, Caldecott Medalist (The Invention of Hugo Cabret)
