Not a classic like Dr. Seuss's ABC Book, but still a worthy addition to the young reader's alphabet-learning repertoire. Each letter (plus the clusters ch, sh and th) is illustrated with many people, things and actions featuring the letter, though not necessarily beginning with the letter. Every instance of the featured letter in the text and labels appears in magenta.

I'm sure that when I was little we had a version of this book in which on each page there was one instance of the capital and lower-case letter that was not colored. Then, at the end, all the unlabeled letters go into a huge pot of alphabet soup. Did I just dream it? My childhood didn't overlap the 1960s that much, so hallucinogens weren't likely involved in these memories.
