Book review: ABCs on Wings, by Ramon Olivera

Olivera, Ramon. ABCs on Wings. Little Simon, an imprint of Simon & Schuster, 2015. Unp. $17.99. ISBN 9781481432429. Ages 3-7. P 7 Q 8

Olivera ABCs on WingsPractice the aviation ABCs with Ramon Olivera’s first book, ABCs on Wings. As an illustrator, Olivera has a unique cubist style that he tones down slightly for this book. The pages contain different kinds of winged objects to flesh out these ABCs: however, all letters are assigned to machines that fly. Like many ABC books with a specific theme, it can be tricky to find designations for each letter. In this case, Olivera uses creative solutions for challenging letters like U, V, and X. Each letter is represented in upper and lower case, followed by the usual “…is for…” phrase. ABCs on Wings is a successful alphabet book for those just learning the ABCs, or any child with an affinity for aeronautics.
