About the Book

Alphabet School

written and illustrated by Stephen T. Johnson
Explore the ins and outs of A to Z in an educational setting in this innovative picture book from the Caldecott Honor–winning creator of ALPHABET CITY and A IS FOR ART.
Imagine a school. Any school. Be it your school, one from memory, or even a dream school. Then enter and embark on a journey of wonder and delight. Look closely. There’s a letter C in the curve of a globe, a little L in the handle of a pencil sharpener, or at recess, a vibrant yellow V in a geodesic climbing dome.
Can you find the letters on every page?
From inside the classroom to outside on the playground, Caldecott Honor artist and author Stephen T. Johnson renders the ordinary extraordinary with timeless imagery, inviting us to reexamine and rediscover our schools anew, and to find beauty and joy in the most unexpected places.
