Maria Carluccio's playful fashion alphabet celebrates the fun of getting dressed—and getting dressed up! From a sophisticated bow tie to a warm wool hat, this diverse celebration of what we wear from A to Z invites kids to get creative and embrace their own unique style. Plus, this is the fixed-format version, which looks almost identical to the print edition!
Even children who don't yet know the alphabet are well acquainted with the routine of getting dressed. In this sartorial abecedary, Carluccio (I'm Three! Look What I Can Do) presents a multicultural crew of children whose outfits highlight clothing items, fabrics, patterns, and more. From everyday "glasses" and "overalls" to special occasions (on Halloween, a fairy, witch, and vampire show off their "costumes" while students wear "leotards" during a dance class), Carluccio's grainy, digital illustrations create soft, layered scenes for every occasion; her experience working in textile design shows in her assortment of clothing types, patterns, and prints worked into the images. It's a stylish apron-to-zipper primer that proves that there are many ways to look great, whatever your style. Ages 3 5.
