Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Seven new board books present concepts in a variety of ways. In Flora McDonnell's ABC, each letter is illustrated twice, once capitalized and once in lowercase. Two ants walk on the nose of a big alligator, an elephant holds an egg on the tip of its trunk and one small teapot rests on the head of a large tiger. Bold colors and humorous touches will keep youngsters turning the pages. ( Mar.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Children's Literature - Kristin Harris
This large format picture book is illustrated with loose, large brush strokes. Each image brings together creatures and objects for each letter- two ants crawling on an alligator's snout, a carload of cats, a ladybug on a lemon. The large images are colorful and demand attention, then invite investigation. Children will enjoy the pictures, and the large clear words will be effective in introducing letters and words. In addition, the unusual combinations of creatures and objects will inspire free-form storytelling.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
Artist Flora McDonnell's oversize (10- x 12-inch), mostly animal ABC is perfect for toddlers and other preschoolers. It is simple, uncluttered, with one or two items per page. Ms. McDonnell's humorously paired subjects are also wonderful imagination-stirrers for tell-me-what's happening, -just-happened, or -will-happen conversations and creative writings.

Meet the Author

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."
