8: An Animal Alphabet by Elisha Cooper; Awake Beautiful Child by Amy Krouse Rosenthal; Daytime Visions: An Alphabet by ISOL


Reviewed by Jane Oliver-Purton (Library Staff)

I recently decided to add some new alphabet books to our collection, and these three stuck me as unusual offerings. Each brings a different perspective to the theme of alphabet books. 8 An Animal Alphabet features a page full of animals for each letter of the alphabet (yes, even X!) Awake Beautiful Child has pictures matching words beginning with A B and C on each page, beautiful pictures and lyrical phrases. Daytime Visions may be an alphabet book for older kids, but little ones will be intrigued by the pictures. and phrases following each letter. This trio are definitely not your grandma’s ABC books, and they are well worth the read. If you’re looking for more alphabet books, pick up an ABC bookmark at the children’s desk.
