Welcome to a rather wonderful little section of our site, in which we are building a cool collection of alphabet picture books, most of which feature great art.
For most of us an ABC book was where we first began learning to read, and so it has been for many generations. However, times change and some of the art and verse in these books are most certainly not suitable for children of today.
Take for example "The Union ABC". where along with a picture of a lynched man is the caption "T is a traitor that was hung on a tree". Or the politically incorrect verse in the "Babes of the Empire A to Z".
Don't forget to come back as we add more to our "A is for Amazing, B is for Book, C is for Collection"!
