KIRKUS REVIEW

A pretty little alphabet, measuring just 4 3/8" by 4 1/4", for those who measure the sweetness of a children's book by its nostalgia quotient. Each page contains but a single letter, with each letter serving as a frame for a child engaged in an innocent pastoral pastime: picking berries (B), fishing (F), ice skating (I), and so on. Each scene is decorated with blossoms, fruit, curving vines, or the like, and the endpapers inform us that the flowers climbing up the H are honeysuckles, those peeking out around the Q are Queen Anne's lace, etc. A posy for the greeting-card trade.
