These ABC books feature objects from the title museums' collections to illustrate letters of the alphabet. Museum of Modern Art features Matisse's Dance for the letter ""D,'' Picasso's bronze She-Goat for ``G,'' Hopper's House by the Railroad for ``H.'' Museum of Fine Arts shows an antique Pennsylvanian armchair for ``A''; an Audubon picture from The Birds of America (a yellow-breasted chat nesting represents the letter ``N''); and for ``Y,'' the word youngsters, applied to Jefferson Gauntt's Two Children. The skinny and tall 4 13 format may be unwieldy for small hands, but the selections are varied, and the interesting shapes and textures, brightly reproduced in color photos, will appeal to young children.
