Alphabet Adventure by Audrey Wood, illustrated by Bruce Wood
Blue Sky Press (2001), $17
This alphabet book brings to life the "little letters" as they prepare to teach a child the abc's. On the way to school, the dot for lower case i disappears. Throughout the story, the author cleverly weaves information about the alphabet letters — their order, their correct positions and their sounds. The lively illustrations call attention to both upper- and lowercase letters.
