From the creator of the 2017 Bologna Ragazzi Award-winning title Spellbound, Letters From New York is the next in an ingenious series of 'Letter Art' books. There are shapes all around us... shapes that look like the letters of the A-B-C. Every picture is made from the letters that spell its name... Can you find the letters hidden in these pictures? Letters From New York is fun and educational, and helps with letter recognition, spelling, reading, writing, design and observational skills.
