“All the parts together make an appealing and fun way for youngsters to interact with the alphabet, and for slightly older children to enjoy the clever artwork.” —School Library Journal (Starred Review)
“Lively and tactile.” —Wall Street Journal
With thick pages cut into the shape of each letter, children and parents will enjoy this peek-through guessing game around the letterform itself. Sprinkles, hot fudge, and cherries hint at I’s ice cream sundae, while aquarium accessories hint at F’s fish. As readers interact with the pages, they will familiarize themselves not only with the 26 letters and associated words, but also with each letter’s physicality—angles, holes, and curves, both front and back.
Like other books in the Block Book series, such as Countablock, Dinoblock, Cityblock, and Farmblock, Alphablock features die-cut shapes throughout and sturdy pages with rounded corners, perfect for little hands.
With bright, animated, retro-inspired artwork by Peski Studio, Alphablock encourages the smallest readers to manipulate the alphabet in a whole new way and is a must-have ABC book. Your child will have so much fun reading this book, they won’t realize learning the alphabet is part of their education!
