Practicing your ABC's is pure delight when Babar, Celeste, Arthur, Zephir, and all the beloved characters of Celesteville lead the way. From "Alexander aims his arrow at the apple," to "Zephir zips ups his sleeping bag zipper," a varied vocabulary and fabulous illustrations turn this into a charming read -- as well as a great tool for making learning fun.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A pair of Laurent de Brunhoff books starring everyone's favorite elephant make their reappearance. Babar's ABC (1983) uses full-page and panel vignettes to cover all 26 letters, starting with the airport, Alexander and Arthur, proceeding through Babar and Celeste, and ending with Zephir the monkey zipping up his sleeping bag. Scenes of the circus and firefighters coming to the rescue add to the excitement. Babar's Little Girl (1987) begins with the birth of Babar and Celeste's new baby, Isabelle, and follows her through her first big adventure, in which the family thinks she's lost, but Isabelle knows right where she is.
