About the Author:

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York has a world-renowned art collection.

From Booklist:

K-Gr. 3. Imagination and creativity abound in this brilliantly simple alphabet book from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Each page has its minimal text, as in "A is for Apple" facing a page of four images taken from the vast collections of the Met. There are objects children see every day, an egg, a tree, an umbrella, and parts of themselves, such as feet, hair, and nose. "M is for Monster" produces pictures too beautiful to be scary, including Walter Crane's Beast, and a creature from a fifteenth-century tapestry. "O is for Ox" and "P is for Peacock." They are clearly chosen for the range of fabulous images: an Italian ivory ox from a book cover plaque from the first millennium; a peacock from a nineteenth-century Will Bradley poster. The oversize letter and the word it signifies are printed in color, a hue that picks up one of the colors of the art on the opposite page. Pictures are taken from a timeless array of countries, media, and artists. Very pleasing to look upon, this illuminates lessons in color, form, shape, diversity, and artistic vision as well as the alphabet. GraceAnne DeCandido
