Description of this Book

Aleph is the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet-or maybe a nickname for a toy elephant. Through powerful graphic images, contrasting colours and a thoughtful progression, Aleph moves from basic shapes and familiar objects to a wider world, full of story, character and wonder. Janik Coat's unforgettable illustrations are perfect for sharing with babies-big, simple images with instant appeal.
