A Child's Day: An Alphabet of Play

Pearle, Ida. 2008. A Child's Day: An Alphabet of Play.

This one is self-explanatory isn't it? An alphabet book featuring children at play. (A is for Act, Z is for Zoom.) What would make a book like this unique--worth your time--are the illustrations. (The children are all colors, all cultures--but they're faces are featureless.) And that's something so subjective, it would be hard to predict how YOU'll react to them. So I thought I would share what I could. I find the art interesting. Some really grab me. Some are bold. Some are subdued. All are expressive.

  1. We have this one but haven't read it yet. Just flipping through it, I was enjoying the illustrations. They are truly artistic.

  2. I have a penchant for alphabet books. I will add this one to my list.
