Starting with the simplest images-apples for A, bowls for B, cat for C-Sara Pinto has taken a magical leap in the concept of alphabet books. Each letter has a door, and behind each door the objects arrange and rearrange themselves so that with every letter the picture becomes more complex. Letter by letter, magical scenes unfold inside the room. With gentle humor and charming design, this lift-the-flap alphabet book transcends the genre to offer something truly unique.

Sara Pinto is a designer who lives with her family in Montpelier, Vermont. The Alphabet Room is her first book and is the recipient of the PEN New England Children's Book Discovery Award.From Booklist:
PreS. Pinto's exceptional Alphabet Room is a beautiful example of an ABC book that is both artful and on target for young children, and it adds the delightful surprise of a cumulative hide-and-seek game. Each spread features a letter and a corresponding object in clear, bright, contrasting colors. Underneath the picture of the object, a flap lifts to reveal a warm yellow room, which, as the book progresses, slowly fills up with the featured items, in constantly shifting arrangements. Children will enjoy poring over each new configuration of the room, and finding familiar objects. At the same time they are learning the alphabet, they'll be learning to organize and identify objects. In images of the inviting, magical room, this offers a playful visual literacy exercise.
