ABeCedarios PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

ABeCedarios free pdf Every ABC book worth its cover price is bound to have bright colors and big letters. But not every ABC book has magical hand-carved animals to illustrate every letter. And very few alphabet books present those letters in more varieties than English! Very few alphabet books except the "ABeCedarios," that is! In this brightly colored book, the alphabet is presented in both Spanish and English, and includes the four additional letters--and whimsical animals--that make the Spanish alphabet so much fun.The famous folk artists, brothers Moises and Armando Jimenez, carved the wonderful animal figures that illustrate each letter in "ABeCedarios." Working with their wives and children in the beautiful village of Arrazola in Oaxaca, Mexico, they carved and painted each enchanting animal by hand. For many centuries, people in Oaxaca have carved wood to make toys and household objects. However, it was Moises and Armando's grandfather Manuel who started making animal figures. Now more than sixty families in Arrazola make their living from wood carving.Cynthia Weill works at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. She is the co-author with Pegi Deitz Shea of "Ten Mice for Tet" (Chronicle Books, 2003), a book inspired by the Vietnamese embroidery she saw while working in international relief in Hanoi, Vietnam. She is trained as an art historian and studies the process of folk artisans around the world.K. B. Basseches is an artist, photographer, and art educator.
