by Nikki Grimes
Illustrated by Pat Cummings

Published by Lothrop, Lee & Shepard, 1995
40 pages
ISBN: 0-688-11809-7

Ages 3 - 6

Rhyming verses for each letter of the alphabet celebrate the sights and sounds of a lively Manhattan neighborhood. Pat Cummings' shimmering color illustrations extend the text even further by adding several objects for children to identify in each picture. At the end of the book, she has provided an alphabetical key which lists the illustrated objects corresponding to each letter, right down to the names of typefaces she has used (Airkraft, Benguiat, Cooper Black, etc) which also go in corresponding alpabetical order. CCBC categories: PICTURE BOOKS; POETRY; ACTIVITIES; CONTEMPORARY PEOPLE, PLACES AND EVENTS.  © Cooperative Children's Book Center
