Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Artist and printmaker Jesse Levison brings style to the alphabet in U is for Underwear. Toddlers will keep turning the pages of this chunky board book featuring simple, vibrant, and graphic illustrations. Imbuing everyday objects with a sense of wonder, the bold artwork makes a perfect introduction to the ABCs for young pre-readers who can trace the letters with a finger and begin to understand the symbolic representation that underlies reading and writing.

Parents can begin to develop literacy in even very young children by exposing them to the letters of the alphabet, making U is for Underwear a fun and easy tool for imprinting little brains. Pleasing to the eye for both kids and adults, Jesse's retro sensibility and witty simplicity makes this a potential cross-over title for their little learners—or at least a great gift for style-conscious parents.

Review:

"It's easy to see why a pair of tighty-whities figures prominently in the title and cover of this board book — they are by far the most eye-catching example in this otherwise straightforward abecedary. Levison, a Brooklyn-based artist, offers clean, understated portraits of a rubber duck for D, a swirl of pink ice cream for I, and a gray feather quill for Q. But while the artwork, rendered in bright and creamy colors against an equally creamy taupe background, is certainly handsome, the overall effect is of a book designed to appeal more to a modern parental aesthetic than to a child's sense of fun. Ages 2 — 6. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
