D Is for Dress-Up: The ABC’s Of What we Wear by Maria Carluccio
It is hot outside and cool clothing may be on your mind. This little book is a perfect solution for the summer heat. Curl up on the couch in the air-conditioning and enjoy the alphabet as you talk about the clothes we wear.
Not all alphabet books are created equal. They are best when they include uppercase and lowercase letters, plus corresponding words that make sense to children. D is for Dress-up shows each uppercase letter, and prints a lower case word below the uppercase. The choice of clothing items are mostly recognizable to children, along with one or two words that are great vocabulary expanders; E is for ensemble or V is for vintage. The illustrations feature soft painted colors, diverse children and diverse activities. This alphabet book is a winner!
