Add It Dip It Fix It: A Book of Verbs

Fall 1995 Picture Books
Ages: 4 - 8 yrs.

ISBN: 0395727715
Review:
The charm of this breezily original ABC emanates from an unlikely source: the lowly, third-person singular pronoun "it" as it capers mesmerisingly through the alphabet. With the help of 26 wittingly-conceived ideograms the artist also makes unequivocally clear the meanings of a wide variety of useful, one-syllable active verbs. It may not sound like much, but the book's high intelligence and appealing graphic design are both instructive and memorable.
