Aside from shapes and colors, the alphabet is one of the first things we learn, whatever language you may speak.
And there are a lot of ABC books out there, a lot. Some are great, and some are not, but chances are you've read a fare number of them over the years.
Which honestly, makes the task of finding one we felt really good about bringing into the store, a challenge. Lucky for us Charley Harper, the wonderful artist behind one of our favorite new books in the store, Charles Harper's Birds & Words, also created an ABC book.
There really isn't much to an ABC book, so when the content can stand on its own as a worthy distraction, you know it's a good one. And this is a good one.
The colors are modern and vibrant, the illustrations are to die for, and the content (i.e. what each letter stands for) is dare we say, a bit more original.
The early years fly by in the blink of an eye, and the lessons we learn so early on tend to stick with us. So make the most of them with this little wonder of an ABC book.
Oh and while you're at it, enter to win a copy of Charley Harper's ABCs! Not only that, but in the spirit of this highly creative and imaginative artist, we want you to have a set of ABC blocks you can decorate yourself.
For a chance to win a copy of Charley Harper's ABCs and a set of Alphablanks (lower or upper case), simply leave a comment on this post by 8am MST Thursday March 13th. The winner will be chosen by random number and announced later that day.
Good Luck Everyone!
