"In 1953, Time magazine called Antonio Frasconi America's foremost practitioner of the ancient art of the woodcut. Four decades later, Art Journal called him the best of his generation." ― The New York Times
In this New York Times Best Book of the Year, internationally renowned artist Antonio Frasconi presents beautiful and brightly colored woodcuts depicting a variety of everyday items — a boat, Christmas tree, dog, train, birthday cake, and many other eye-catching objects. The word for each image is given in English (printed in black), Italian (blue), French (red), and Spanish (green), and accompanied by pronunciation guides. A page of common expressions such as "Good morning!" and "What time is it?" in each language appears at the end.
For the very young, this is a delightful picture book; for older children, it offers useful illustrated language lessons. All will enjoy the whimsical images and accompanying words and phrases.
