  About The Book

In this abridged board book edition of the successful hardcover picture book, Museum ABC, kids can learn their ABCs with the accompaniment of stunning artwork from The Metropolitan Museum of Art. A page is devoted to each letter of the alphabet and a single, memorable picture of the object is represented; for example, the classic "A is for APPLE" is accompanied by a well-known piece of art by Cezanne showing apples. Adults will love the visual and cultural richness of this alphabetical tour, which also includes details about each piece of art and its creator in the back. And with rounded edges and a smaller format, this is a perfect fit for younger children just learning the alphabet.
