~I received ABC Pasta An Entertaining Alphabet for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
ABC Pasta An Entertaining Alphabet by Juana Medina Rosas is a children’s books that takes a unique spin on traditional alphabet books. Real photos of pasta are positioned into funny drawings acting out the letters…but using words that will make little ones giggle!
A is for angel hair acrobat
M is for Macaroni the Magician
and T is for tortellini trapeze artist.
It’s an ABC circus that’s good enough to eat!
Juana Medina ate a LOT of pasta while making this book! She grew up in Colombia and now lives and works in Washington, D.C. She is the illustrator of Smick! by Doreen Cronin, and is the author/illustrator of Juana and Lucas and 1 Big Salad: A Delicious Counting Book. Please visit her and her work at juanamedina.com.
What makes this book so fun is the real photos of pasta put into the silly scenes and it makes both my 5 and 8 years old laugh. It is listed for ages baby-3 so this would make a great baby shower or first birthday gift. You can never go wrong giving the gift of books!
