Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A highly engaging introduction to art, this thoughtfully designed volume will inspire young children to see not only the alphabet in an entirely new way but also the world around them as they discover and learn to view paintings, sculptures, photographs, and other works and installations housed at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.... This would be a wonderful gift for any young child."
