PreS-K-Each page of Alphabet has a large, whimsical, pastel illustration and a sentence with alliterative words that demonstrate the sound of a single letter, except for V and W, which appear together on one page, as do X, Y, and Z. The sentence, which is on the bottom of the page, is in large type, with words to be emphasized printed in bold, for example, "A fawn and its friends eat fruit in the forest." The letter is featured in a boxed area in upper- and lowercase forms. Numbers devotes a spread to each integer from 1 to 10. The left-hand page has a large illustration and a sentence with the number in boldface type. On the right-hand page there are two boxed areas, one with the number in numerical form and the other with an illustration using a particular shape. For example, "Nine suitcases are stacked on the train for a trip to Maine." The number nine and a box containing nine pyramids are on the facing page, with an illustration of a bear pushing nine suitcases stacked on a dolly. Given the number of books available on these concepts, these titles are strictly additional.-Maren Ostergard, Bellevue Regional Library, WA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
