The Alphabet Room
by Sara Pinto
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.

25 months - this is a fun book! O names thing we didn't think she knew using the letter as a clue... Not just coat or jacket but R is for "Rain Jacket". And what's going on in the room each time as items are added is really fun!! So much to talk about this book can take us a half hour to read.

The illustrations are pretty fun. There are some fun word choices used for the letters that are a bit off the beaten path. My favorite part is that each time an item is added to the room, everything changes around completely, to keep kids interested.
While the illustrations aren't as pleasing to the eye as many of my favorite picture books, the book makes up for it in creativity. Each letter brings a new object to the room, and a newly changed picture to enjoy. My two-year-old loves watching the changing scene hidden behind the door. What a fun introduction to the alphabet, and fun for parents too.
