Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There is a world of letters just waiting to be discovered in the world around us — if we know how to look for it. In this engaging and delightful book, photographer Elliott Kaufman reveals the "secret" life of the alphabet through his photographs, showing how letters can be found in things we encounter everyday. Each letter of the alphabet is represented by multiple images, each unintentionally created by the intersection of architectural details, shadows, light, or natural elements as caught by Kaufman's keen eye. Some are obvious, while others demand a little more imagination to recognize, inviting the readers to start their own game of hunting for letters! This fun approach also reinforces the notion that learning to see the familiar in new ways encourages visual literacy and creativity.

Review:

"This beautiful book turns the alphabet into a visual treasure hunt, showing kids that letters can pop up in the most unexpected places: the curves of a door handle, the bricks on a wall, the metal of a lantern. Don't be surprised if your kid starts searching for A to Z wherever she goes, and perfecting her letter recognition along the way!" Education.com, Kindergarten Summer Reading List 2012

Review:

"Kaufman looks in unexpected places to find all the letters of the alphabet, and the results are creative and visually appealing." It's Fundamental, Children's Book Reviews from a Preschool Teacher

Review:

"In this gorgeous picture book Elliott Kaufman transforms everyday scenes into magic by capturing 'natural' occurrences of letters in the everyday world." Cozy Little Book Journal
