The bright, bold illustrations and pared back colour palette give this search-and-find alphabet book an edgy, modern-vintage feel. Each letter is celebrated with a full-page scene featuring objects that start with that letter for children to spot. For example, A is for avocados, asparagus, apples, acorns, airplanes and an astronaut. Just in case you miss any objects, there’s a handy list at the back of the book, creatively set out on lined paper like kids use when they’re first learning to write. As an Aussie, I had to double check the bridge on the G page was the Golden Gate and confess I hadn’t heard of “ziti” pasta – so I learnt something too. The inclusion of jalepeno at J gave us the opportunity to talk about how letters don’t always sound the way you’d expect them to. And the flashlight at F reminded us that people around the world sometimes name things differently to us. Now I Know My Avocados among other things is written and illustrated by #StephanieWykoff @nowiknowmyavocados.
