      Yeah, ok, I do appreciate the inclusion of both upper and lower-case. And the omission, for clarity and punch, of extra words (such as 'is for'). But I've figured out that I'm just not a fan of Wildsmith's art. You might be, so don't mind my rating.

      My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library last week. He loves it so much, he keeps hiding it under his bed. It will mysteriously appear at our nightly story time. I love this book because my son can "read" almost all of it. It is the "iguana" that trips him up. And the unicorn, but that's not surprising because we so seldom see a unicorn around here. The illustrations are sumptuous -- rich, colorful, textured, dimensional and, ever so slightly, psychedelic in an early 1960s sort [...]

      This book is I believe from the 1960's, however, it is still to this day a very good ABC book. It uses both the Upper case and lower case letters to spell out words. For instances, elephant and ELEPHANT and then a big picture of a beautiful elephant is on the opposite page. I really like the book for children because it uses different "A is ford b is for" than normal ABC books. Like K which in this book is for Kettle, I is for Iguana, and my absolute favorite U is for unicorn! The book also help [...]

      Idiosyncratic ABC book featuring mostly animals.Boring ABC book. The images are weirdly stylized and possibly oil paintings. Every page is a letter and an image of something that starts with that letter. They are almost all animals, with the bizarre exception of Q, which is a queen (okay, so that's technically an animal) instead of say, a quail. N is a nest of eggs, which is animal-related. V is a violin and X is a xylophone. Everything else is animals. You would think that he could have thought [...]

      This book has lasted as a favorite of parents, teachers, and children for generations and it's easy to see why. Each page explodes with color and simple text. On the left page is the word, on the right is the illustration. The word appears twice; once in all capital letters and one in all lowercase letters. The artwork is worthy of hanging in any gallery and if one could bear to take apart this book (gasp!), the pictures would be a perfect addition to a nursery or playroom.Continue reading on Ex [...]

      Brian Wildsmith has truly outdone himself with the colorful illustrations. Brian Wildsmith goes through the alphabet A-Z with a page of capitalized and lowercase words accompanied by an amazing illustration. He uses very challenging words, but children can refer to the picture. 4-6 year love the drawings and the opportunity to identify lowercase and uppercase letters. What sets this ABC book apart is the first letter in the word is highlighted in a different color. That ways students know they a [...]

      I love this ABC book. It has a painting of a single object and the word written twice, once capitalized, once small case. The paintings are vibrant, unusual, some realistic, some strange, but always full of life. I love the elephant.

      Originally published in Great Britain in 1962. Earned the 1963 Kate Greenaway Award (comparable to the Caldecott Medal in the U.S.).

      Very nice pictures for A B C book. My 3 year old can recognize most of the animals.

    10. Nancy on said:

      A beautifully illustrated ABC book by famed children's book illustrator Brian Wildsmith. It's a simple book with one image per page.

      Very pretty. I like this one for and older child--one who can easily identify the pictures and letters and learn to read the words.(the book shows a picture, a letter, and a word)
