From artist and printmaker Jesse Levison comes a stylish alphabet for young children featuring simple, vibrant, graphic illustrations and a playful sensibility.

Imbuing everyday objects with a sense of wonder, Jesse’s bright, bold artwork makes a perfect introduction to the alphabet for young pre-readers. Kid-friendly and fun images will keep toddlers turning the pages of this chunky board book.

  • Parents can begin to develop literacy in even very young children by exposing them to the letters of the alphabet.
  • In this book, simple, fun images that toddlers can relate to are paired with a word in a repetitive format perfect for practicing letters.
  • Pictures, play, and the printed word combine to give kids an understanding of the symbolic representation that underlies reading and writing.
  • Brief sessions of simply looking at images, letters, and words are ideal when first reading to small children.
  • The page format makes it easy to help kids trace the letters with a finger, an excellent activity for imprinting little brains.
  • For grown-ups, Jesse’s retro style and witty simplicity make this a potential cross-over title—or at least a great gift for style-conscious parents.
