Summary

Nancy Elizabeth Wallace has done it again with her adorable three-dimensional artwork created with cut paper, scissors, and a glue stick. She invites children to enter an alphabet house and join a family of bunnies as they look for familiar objects starting with the letters A to Z. If they miss anything, an easy-to-follow answer key is provided at the back. An almost wordless text makes Alphabet House a great introduction to visual literacy, and the paper quilts on the endpapers add another colorful way to look at the alphabet.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS-Gr. 2. A large rabbit family lives in a cut-paper Alphabet House: Come inside, / look and see, things that start / with A to Z. On each page\b , family members, pictured doing some familiar activity, are surrounded by objects that begin with the featured letter, which appears in both upper- and lowercase form in the upper-left corner of the picture. For example, a rabbit boy sits on a bed reading a book, his boots nearby on the floor, a bee at the window, a bat in the corner, and a bird in a box that rests atop some blocks. With the exception of occasional labels to help identify less familiar objects, the book is wordless; the bright, bold collage art does the work. The cut-paper art is clean and uncluttered, and the family context makes the selected objects easier to identify. A list of the items that appear on each page is appended. A good addition to the plethora of alphabet books. --Karen Hutt Copyright 2005 Booklist"
