Look around the room.  As you look around, see if you can see the letters of the alphabet in objects in the room.  Maybe a window pane looks like an "o".  There are several alphabet books that use everyday found objects to represent the letters of the alphabet. This book is a bit different.  The artists used everyday found objects and put them together to create an object to represent the letters.  So a train created by pieces of tin and cogs represents the letter "t".  These found objects are pretty cool.  They may even make you want to create your own found alphabet!
SUBJECTS:     Alphabet.
                        Stories in rhyme.
