Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
A group of multiracial tots cavorts through the alphabet, illustrating the lyrics of the eponymous 1940s musical hit. Ages 3-up. (Jan.)
Children's Literature - Dr. Judy Rowen
This song, originally written in 1948, is given new life with pastel watercolors. Each page of the book features a letter of the alphabet adorned with children and the accompanying verse from the song. Young toddlers will love to have the book "sung" to them. Older children will recognize the letters but the illustrations and lyrics don't always clearly associate the letters with their use in words.
Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
This song has been around for fifty years and it is still a delight. Martha Alexander has created lovely watercolor pictures for each letter in this alphabet tour. They are filled with cute kids involved in lots of activities. This board book version of her earlier picture book offers a pleasant approach to learning the ABCs.
Annie Ayres
A you're adorable , B you're so beautiful , C you're a cutie full of charms . . . Using the 1940s song by Buddy Kaye, Fred Wise, and Sidney Lippman, Alexander has created a charming ABC song book that features her signature sweet-faced children, drawn in softly colored pastel watercolors, scampering about the crisp capital letters that the song uses to celebrate what you mean to me! For those familiar with this song popularized by Perry Como (and for those who are not, the sheet music is included on the endpapers), it will be difficult not to sing along, but the lyrics can be read aloud by the musically challenged. Offering a lovely and lyrical alternative to the standard ABC song, this will be a pleasant addition to alphabet-book collections.

Meet the Author

Sidney Lippman says, "Making an illustrated children's book out of the song is such a natural idea that I'm amazed the process wasn't reversed—that the children's book didn't come first, followed by the song."

Martha Alexander said, "I've never had so much fun illustrating a book. My editor and art director said, 'No limits—do it the way you want.' That really freed me. I especially loved putting the baby animals in the pictures." Martha Alexander died in 2006.

    Old Favorite

    This book is taken from a song that I used to sing to my children when they were babies. Now I purchase it for the next generation to continue the sweet song. Babies as young as 3 months will listen to the book.

    This is an adorable book for little children (and big ones, too!).

    My 16 month old granddaughter loves me to sing this book to her. She gets right in there and turns the pages for me and bounces along with the rhythm. The only thing we change is the words for the letter "I". We sing "You're the ice cream on my thighs", which will hopefully get a laugh from her some day! (I'd rather she laugh than idolize.) It is one of her favorite stories to "read"!

    A is for Always Adorable!

    Wonderful song, and wonderful book. Even if the reader sings a little off-key (by all means, add the tune), a baby / toddler will love hearing it from a grandparent or parent. It's a perfect bedtime read - beautiful sentiments with just the right illustrations - and it's a board book, so it will hold up when little ones show their appreciation by taking a bite.

    Great book!

    My grandfather sang the song to me when I was a child. I was soooo glad to find this book. Now I can pass a piece of my grandfather on to my kids.

    Our Favorite Board Book

    Our family treasures this book! I had never heard the song or seen the book when I ordered it for my one year old twins. We read A your Adorable several times everyday! My husband and I quickly committed the words to memory and recite it all the time. All young children will enjoy this book and so will their families!
