the hidden alphabet

Parents and children alike will enjoy the hidden alphabet by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.

Seeger created a beautiful lift-the-flap book with capital letters. Each flap has a window with a picture illustrating the letter. Then, the reader lifts the flap to reveal: the hidden letter of the alphabet.

Seeger elegant paintings for each letter really capture children’s interest. I found all my children, on separate occasions, enjoying this book – and they are 12, 10 and 8. They really enjoyed sharing it with some visiting 4-year-old friends too.

This is a book to enjoy with a child – not hand it off for him to look at by himself. Perhaps some toddlers or preschoolers could be trusted with a lift-the-flap book by themselves, but not most. And this is a book you want to be able to enjoy over and over again.

Highly recommended for ages 6 months to 5 years.
