Alphabet Everywhere by Elliott Kaufman
The photography in this book is lovely. It captures the letters and frames them to show off their alphabetical qualities. Letters that sometimes get the short end in other alphabet books (like Q or X) here have just as much to share as other letters. Each letter gets one big photo and four small ones, showing off the many different ways that it appears in the world. This is a great book to get kids thinking about letters, particularly kids who are already familiar with the alphabet. The more abstract nature might not be the best way to introduce letters to them for the first time, but kids who know their ABCs can have a great time searching for them in their own "everywheres."
