Overview

ABC3D by Marion Bataille

"Easily the most innovative alpabet book of the year, if not the decade... Beyond clever."—The Washington Post

Prepare to be amazed. From the lenticular cover that changes with the angle of your hands all the way to the Z, ABC3D is as much a work of art as it is a pop-up book. Each of the 26 three-dimensional letters move and change before your eyes. C turns into D with a snap. M stands at attention. X becomes Y with a flick of the wrist. And then there's U...Boldly conceived and brilliantly executed with a striking black, red, and white palette, this is a book that readers and art lovers of all ages will treasure for years to come.

ABC3D is a 2009 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year.

I loved this little book from an adult perspective. It had to be put together by an engineer or an artist, I thought, and I admired every page and all the ingenuity. However, I don't know how practical or engaging it is for a child learning the alphabet. It lacks color, though the black-and-white format is striking and not distracting, but the optical skills required may be developmentally beyond a 3- to 5-year old. I'd still want it for my collection, though. It's unique, remarkable, clever, wonderful, gorgeous, creative as can be, but I don't want the little ones to touch it. Weird, huh?

I was taught the alphabet in a coloring book that made the letters into fanciful characters, and I can still remember them (50 years later). This book takes it to the next level, with letters popping up in a myriad of fascinating 3-D graphics. I can't wait to teach my granddaughter her alphabet using this book! One point -- NOT a read-alone book for toddlers. If you want to preserve the integrity of the graphics, read to or with kids, or first teach care and respect of books -- these pages will be begging for little fingers to tug and tear!

I collect alphabet books and also love pop-up books. This purchase was a no-brainer for me. It is so much fun and the pop-up design is incredible. Though it is a great tool for expanding the learning of the alphabet for children, I also think it is an eye-catching book for adults. It is definitely one of my favorites!
