PreS-K-- Yet another alphabet book nudges its way into a crowded, but receptive, market. It Begins with an A has the child appeal of a riddle book combined with the practicality of an alphabet book. Each page has four pictures, four clues, and a question, ``What is it?'' In most cases the ``what'' is easily guessed. For the uncertain, there is a guide at the back with picture and word answers. The illustrations offer adequate support to the text and have a nice mix of ages, genders, and ethnicity. Their childlike simplicity could remind youngsters of their own artwork, although the control of an artist is evident. A muted palette strong in secondary colors may be a relief to those weary of bright splashes of primary color or wispy pastels. Preschoolers will delight in responding to ``What is it?'' --Jody McCoy, Casady School, Oklahoma City
