Description


A New York Review Children's Collection Original
An ALPHABET book?
An ALBUM of old photos?
We named it ALPHABETABUM.
Here celebrated artists and authors Vladimir Radunsky and Chris Raschka put a delightful new old-fashioned spin on the alphabet book. Radunsky has selected portraits of children from his spectacular collection of antique black and-white photographs. Raschka has given the children names and written deliciously teasing rhymes about them.
The result is ALPHABETABUM, a book of letters and pictures to which readers will happily return again and again both to look and to learn.
