More About Flora McDonnell
Flora McDonnell began her work on her alphabet book by drawing things that had an obvious link to one another. "It wasn't working, so I decided to choose anything that I happened to like--things that have made an impression on me throughout my life. The minute I did that, the book began to work. I think art and life are like that. You have to enjoy what you are doing in order to do it well."

A goodie Jul 14, 2001
I like this book quite a lot. Each letter has two pictures - one spelled in capitals and one spelled in small case. In fact, I would have given it 5 stars, except that the book uses Giant - too hard for a little one to grasp - and unicorn, which don't exist. Picky, picky I know. Let me assure it, it doesn't stop me (or my daughter) from pulling it off the shelf time and time again.
What a Fun Way to Learn the Alphabet! Apr 13, 2000
This is a large, fun, bright, colorful book. Each page has a letter of the alphabet in uppercase and lowercase, and each page has two things that begin with the featured letter. What is especially charming is that one of the two things is a very large item and the other small, and the large thing is spelled in all uppercase letters and the small thing in all lowercase letters. Example for the letter J: JUGGLER/jellybeans. The illustrations are delightfully bold. A wonderful addition to any child's library.
