Älphabatics"is a book using different animals and objects doing acrobatics to teach the alphabet. This book would be great for Kindergarten.

a very simple book that discusses the alphabet and objects that represent those letters.

A is for ark. But did you know that if you turn an A upside down and round the point out a little, it becomes an ark? B is for balloon. But did you know that if you blow it up really big, the hole in the middle floats away like a balloon? In this wonderfully creative alphabet book, letters are pulled, twisted, reversed, and curled until they become part of what they represent. F becomes a fish, and Y becomes a yak!

Caldecott honor.?
Goodness.?á Why have I never seen this book before?!?á My first-born arrived in 1985, the next in 1988, so this just the right age that this should have been hard to miss in our library trips.?á We all would have loved it, and probably tried our own hands at some transformations (I know S -> Snake is easy and fun for lots of kids).

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0689716257, Paperback)

A is for ark. But did you know that if you turn an A upside down and round the point out a little, it becomes an ark?

B is for balloon. But did you know that if you blow it up really big, the hole in the middle floats away like a balloon?

In this wonderfully creative alphabet book, letters are pulled, twisted, reversed, and curled until they become part of what they represent. F becomes a fish, and Y becomes a yak!

Young readers will be fascinated with the way the letters evolve into the final creation. They'll never look at the alphabet the same way again!

(retrieved from Amazon Thu, 12 Mar 2015 18:08:23 -0400)

(see all 4 descriptions)

The letters of the alphabet are transformed and incorporated into twenty-six illustrations, so that the hole in "b" becomes a balloon and "y" turns into the head of a yak.
