About U IS FOR UNDERWEAR:
Artist and printmaker Jesse Levison brings style to the alphabet in U is for Underwear. Toddlers will keep turning the pages of this chunky board book featuring simple, vibrant, and graphic illustrations. Imbuing everyday objects with a sense of wonder, the bold artwork makes a perfect introduction to the ABCs for young pre-readers who can trace the letters with a finger and begin to understand the symbolic representation that underlies reading and writing.
Parents can begin to develop literacy in even very young children by exposing them to the letters of the alphabet, making U is for Underwear a fun and easy tool for imprinting little brains. Pleasing to the eye for both kids and adults, Jesse’s retro sensibility and witty simplicity makes this a potential cross-over title for their little learners—or at least a great gift for style-conscious parents.
