The other day, my four-year-old son told me this story: Once upon a time, there was a Thomas named Thomas. He was reading a train book. To a dinosaur. And the dinosaur turned into a robot. And rode the train. With a bee. The End. He was holding Donald Crews’ Freight Train, and Bob Staake’s My Little ABC Book was open next to him on the sofa. Not surprisingly, a train, a dinosaur, a robot and a bee can all be found in the ABC book. I have read that this ABC book was one of Mr. Staake’s first forays into digital art. It shows, but not in a bad way. The shapes elemental; the colors are saturated; the lines are sharp; and the shading is blocky, yet these qualities all work really well for a book that is as basic as the alphabet. This book reminds me of alphabet blocks in book form and since I often find this book in with my son’s alphabet blocks, I must not be the only one. While the illustrations clearly consist of basic shapes, they are still instantly recognizable. My son can “read” this book because he can recognize the pictures. As an added bonus, he also recognizes the shapes used to form the illustrations, so they reinforce his knowledge of them and HE is learning to draw by using shapes.
My little boy is 17 months old and loves this book we checked it out at the library and kept it for 2 months. This book has helped him learn what different objects are and his abc's too. He really has learned alot from this book and loves it.
This is a wonderfully whimsical book on the ABC¿s: U umbrella, V Vegetables, W Whale, and so forth! The illustrations are artistically striking, brilliantly colored, and are sure to stimulate baby¿s senses while teach small children the ABC¿s. This enchanting little board book, vibrantly animated will fascinate your children and teach them too.
