This delightful volume uses twenty-six great photographs from the J. Paul Getty Museum's collection to show children the alphabet in action - and teach them some interesting ways to look at, and wonder about, works of art. Included are photographs by such masters as Walker Evans, Julia Margaret Cameron, Andre Kertesz, Weegee, Dorothea Lange, and Henri Cartier-Bresson. "P is for Peanut" can be enjoyed by children and by their parents, too: readers of all ages will appreciate its beautiful and witty design and its playful juxtapositions of words and images.

Lisa Gelber and Jody Roberts are children's art teachers in Los Angeles.
