A typographic art book for kids where every picture is created using the letters that spell the dog's breed name

How do you spell DOG? In this brand new collection of typographic doggy delights this award-winning illustrator shows you a whole new way to spell your best friend. Each picture is created using only the letters that spell each dog's name, and is partnered with a brief, amusing verse. The exact fonts used are provided in a key on each page to help readers find all the letters that spell each portrait. Letter Art is the missing link between word and picture. It helps associate letters and words with objects, and encourages spelling, letter-recognition, observation, and design skills.
