Synopses & Reviews
This board book features Nikki McClures collection of alphabet paper cuts. (Nikki had a show in Los Angeles earlier in the spring of 2005 where she sold all of the pieces from this collection.) Each paper cut features a baby exploring the world in some way, and is accompanied by a letter of the alphabet through the letter N, at which point, the baby nods off to sleep. This is a high-concept alphabet book—beautiful enough that adults would want to buy it but also accessible to children.
This striking, high-concept board book showcases McClure's distinctive collection of alphabet papercuts. Created while her son was napping, each is accompanied by a letter of the alphabet and features a baby exploring the world in some way. Charmingly, the book ends at the letter N, when baby nods off to sleep.
Presents phrases, each starting with a letter of the alphabet, to describe what a baby sees and dreams about, from being awake to naptime.
