About this title


The artist's illustrations present a painting of at least one animal for each letter of the alphabet.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K Lush watercolor and ink draw ings in purples, blues, and greens enrich this lively and appealing animal alpha bet. Each of the 26 full-page illustrations contains an animal and usually one or more other images whose names begin with the same letter. The animals (all but the ant) are identified on the final page, and a good thing, too, for who would have recognized the upside-down cat fish (an African species) or the Xenops (a small species of the ovenbird family)? Illustrations invite close examination and are notable for their color, composi tion, and the mini-dramas many of them contain. All are surrounded by generous white margins, with black-line borders broken by the top of each upper-case letter (and often by the illustrations it self). One quibble: those upper-case let ters might have been bolder for easier recognition by very young ``readers.'' Still, this is a charming and quite suc cessful first alphabet book, square and solid, and just right for little hands. Marcia Hupp, The Ferguson Lib . , Stam ford, Conn.
