Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Two little girls discover the wondrous charms of grandmother's doll and the magic of the alphabet in this splendid tale. Recounting all of her favorite things, Annabelle the doll teaches the ABC's with a sweet spirit and elegant style.

Renowned illustrator Tasha Tudor outdoes herself with the charming detail of the lovely doll. Using her signature technique of exquisite watercolors, Tudor illustrates cloaks, dresses, and hats in beautiful splendor. Each page features a pretty oval trim of flowers such as roses and daffodils. Details such as Annabelle sleeping under her quilt in her bed or taking a stroll under the umbrella with the two little ladies reflect Tudor's love of all dolls. As Annabelle is shown throughout the house, young readers will appreciate the grand life of this little doll and learn that the alphabet can be simply extraordinary.

Publishers Weekly
Doll lovers of all ages will welcome the alphabet book homage A Is for Annabelle by Tasha Tudor, starring an exquisitely appointed doll and her accoutrements. Originally published in 1954, the volume alternates full-color spreads with b&w drawings, all steeped in Tudor's customary charm. (July) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Great Book for young girls!!

    My mother and I read this book so many times when i was a child(im 26 years old now) that both of us can recite it by memory now. My mom and i always joke about how i would take the book and always give it to her and jump up on her lap for her to read it over and over to me. It was read so many times over the years that some of the pages are now torn and ripped from being used so many times as a child.I definitely recommend this book to anyone with young girls in their families.

    I missed Annabelle!

    Like many others I fell in love with this book in early elementary school ( I am 33 now). I checked this book out every week for months in second grade. I have searched for many years for a decent copy that didn't cost a small fortune. I am so glad they have reprinted this book, it is a classic that girls of any age will enjoy.

    Childhood Favorite

    This was the first book I ever brought home from school library and once I read it, it came home with me every week. This book will always be a special part of my childhood. Every little girl should have the opportunity to fall in love with Annabelle.

    My first book

    'A is for Annabelle' was the first book I ever read when I was in first grade in 1967. I have thought of it many times since then and looked for a copy in bookstores. Only recently has it come back into print, and I shall purchase a copy to have forever. Ms. Tudor is so quietly and elegantly inspirational; I so appreciate the rare opportunity she gives anyone who accepts her invitation to a more civil, genteel time.

    Family Favorite

    This wonderful book has been a favorite in our family for many years. My older daughter (now 23!) had us read it to her so many times that she could recite it to her great grandmother from memory at the age of 3. This book has old fashioned charm in both the illustrations and the unforced flow of the text which rhymes without being contorted to meet the needs or that form. Ms. Tudor understands how much children love the ryhtm and flow of language, and I well remember how my daughters loved the phrases such as 'elegant feather.' I definitely credit this as one of the books that lead my children to enjoy language and reading.
