Sidney Lippman says, "Making an illustrated children's book out of the song is such a natural idea that I'm amazed the process wasn't reversed—that the children's book didn't come first, followed by the song."
Martha Alexander said, "I've never had so much fun illustrating a book. My editor and art director said, 'No limits—do it the way you want.' That really freed me. I especially loved putting the baby animals in the pictures." Martha Alexander died in 2006.
Ages 3-6. A you're adorable / B you're so beautiful / C you're a cutie full of charms . . . Using the 1940s song by Buddy Kaye, Fred Wise, and Sidney Lippman, Alexander has created a charming ABC song book that features her signature sweet-faced children, drawn in softly colored pastel watercolors, scampering about the crisp capital letters that the song uses to celebrate what you mean to me! For those familiar with this song popularized by Perry Como (and for those who are not, the sheet music is included on the endpapers), it will be difficult not to sing along, but the lyrics can be read aloud by the musically challenged. Offering a lovely and lyrical alternative to the standard ABC song, this will be a pleasant addition to alphabet-book collections. Annie Ayres
