An ABC of Flowers

Jutta Hilpuesch. Philomel, $16.99 (32p) ISBN 978-0-525-51785-6
A miniature, line-drawn child named Amelie interacts with the letters of the alphabet, each of which represents a different flower. Photo illustrations are juxtaposed with the large, pastel-colored letters that begin each word, and bright flowers are set against crisp white backgrounds. Amelie is seen holding their stems or playing on or near the petals. Hilpuesch includes garden variety flora (rose and sunflower), but readers may not recognize others, including the purple Jacob’s ladder and the fuchsia-colored kalanchoe. The X, Y, and Z entries close out the alphabet together as Amelie pulls a wagon full of xeranthemum, yarrow, and zinnia. A vividly photographed ABC book with a clean, sophisticated aesthetic. Ages up to 3. (Apr.)
