School Library Journal Review

K-Gr 3-Faulkenberry offers an engaging exploration of the alphabet by presenting leisure-time activities of animal pairs. For example, kangaroos Kevin and Kyra kayak in Kenya. Each vignette is accompanied by a striking full-page linoleum-block illustration, noteworthy for rich color tones and clean style. In fact, the hallmark of the book is its striking page design. The text block is surrounded by abundant white space, and a small element from the larger facing illustration is repeated at the bottom. This inset is accompanied by one or two facts related to the text. For example, "Y" addresses the Yukon and yodeling. Each large illustration includes at least one other object starting with the target letter, and the complete alphabet on the endpapers provides hints for searchers. The actual letters are quite hard to decipher, with various type styles overlaying one another at the start of the paragraph and the text itself superimposed on yet another version of the letter. For groups or individuals exploring words and expanding vocabulary, the book provides an enjoyable alphabet review.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato (c) Copyright 2010.
