Flora McDonnell's ABC

Flora McDonnell. Candlewick Press (MA), $6.99 (36pp) ISBN 978-0-7636-1399-0

Seven new board books present concepts in a variety of ways. In Flora McDonnell's ABC, each letter is illustrated twice, once capitalized and once in lowercase. Two ants walk on the nose of a big alligator, an elephant holds an egg on the tip of its trunk and one small teapot rests on the head of a large tiger. Bold colors and humorous touches will keep youngsters turning the pages. ( Mar.)
