Reissued by a young up-and-coming publisher John McLoughlin, this book melds a pictorial alphabet of everyday objects (axe, cat, fruit, glasses) on the top half of the pages, with a syllabary (ba be bi bo bu) running on the bottom half, pleasing both the adult teacher and the young reader eager for pictures. 

Adopted by Holly V. Izard
