The Hidden Alphabet by Laura Vaccaro Seeger

The alphabet book is a staple in children's picture book publishing, so writers, illustrators, and publishers must always find something new to do with it. In The Hidden Alphabet, cut-outs show the picture of a letter, but when you raise the page flap it reveals a larger picture of an object htat begins with that letter. Flaps are a great way to make books seem like toys (and in turn help them to be more likely chosen by kids to read), and they work well in this book. It doesn't have the same imaginative whimsy that One Boy does, but it's still a solid alphabet choice.

Find it at IndieBound.
