Photographs illustrate some of the common things in the life of a young child, from A (alphabet) to Z (zipper).

From Publishers Weekly:

The idea behind this alphabet book sounds good, but the results are less than attractive. Black-and-white photos show a fresh-faced toddler in a variety of ordinary scenes, with particular objects hand-colored in crayon to match them to a text listing alphabetically ordered items: alphabet, ball, chairs and so on. The text, too, is bicolored, with the first letter of each word coordinating with the art. The compositions are superior and the settings inventive (the photo for "mirror," for example, focuses on the reflected image of the boy getting a haircut). The hand-coloring, however, is definitely an acquired taste. The highlighted objects have an almost radioactive shine, while the colors themselves favor Day-Glo tones. The neon-yellow cocker spaniel illustrating "dog," for example, seems as unreal as the stone sculpture for "lion," which is decorated in nearly the same hue. Rather than directing the reader's attention positively, Hatay's technique may prove more of a distraction. Ages 1-5.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-An attractive, functional, and effective book. This is the alphabet according to Charlie: his dog, his blue eyes, his necklace (cockle shells strung on a ribbon, worn around his neck). The intended toddler-audience will be carried right into his world, and will interact with the chairs, mirrors, or oranges, just like the little boy in the pictures. Hatay has hand-colored the object(s) in each black-and-white photograph that corresponds to the subject of each letter. This technique brings precise visual focus to the concept book. The images create a powerful, clear effect, with no confusion. Each double-page spread is consistently laid out. The large photographs bleed to the edge, and the words appear in big, bold print. The first letter of each word is colored to match the highlighted element in the photograph. Simple and successful for its targeted age group, this book will also be good practice for beginning readers.
