This morning, my little guy asked me for toast with jam, one of his faves. Halfway through, as his lips were smacking and jam was already spreading out onto his cheeks, he said, “Mom! Remember? Bread and Jam for Frances!” Ahhh…our most beloved book. If you haven’t had a chance to pick this up for the library, do so immediately. All kids love the message…that variety is the spice of life!
Graphic artist Paul Thurlby started posting each of these retro-modern alphabet letters online, one at a time, during a slow period in his career. Soon, word spread via artists and blogs. A literary agent noticed and…voila! With its kitschy humor, pop imagery and millennial vocabulary, his new Alphabet Book will grab young imaginations! Thanks, internet, for discovering another great talent.
