A Cat’s Alphabet Book by Sally O. Lee

Sally O. Lee is back with another creative and artistic title. Preschoolers are sure to enjoy A Cat’s Alphabet Book. Lee is the author and illustrator of over 20 books. Some of my girls’ favorite books come from Lee (The Cake Thief, The Rabbit and the Snowman, The Tutu Ballet).

A Cat’s Alphabet Book is a primer filled with Lee’s beautiful artwork. The friendly kitty seen on the cover appears on each page. From apple to kite, and from lemons to zebra, preschoolers will enjoy turning pages as they learn their alphabet. As an added bonus, readers are asked to find the “Lee” signature in each illustration. What fun! Toward the end there is a page that includes all the letters of the alphabet. The last page asks readers what other words they know that begin with these letters, allowing the learning to keep going after they finish the book.

While this book is much too young for my girls, I am holding onto it to share with my nephew when he’s old enough. I hope little Harry will be a Sally O. Lee fan too!
