    One thought on “A Is for Atom: A Midcentury Alphabet”

    1. Picked this up as a gift, initially, but had to buy my own copy for G because I immediately was obsessed. The pictures are beautiful, 1950s cartoons, with some modern twists. I like how the letter is prominently featured on the page, though I wish they would do both an upper and lower case. Super fun, and beautiful to look at!

    2. This is by far my favorite alphabet book I've ever seen! Each letter pinpoints an element of midcentury life and culture: barbecue, drive-in, hot-rod, letterman (jacket), poodle, rock-n-roll, UFO, and waitress. Each page is illustrated with fabulous stereotypical fifties design, furniture, clothing, color, and style. I probably like it more than my son!

    3. I don't understand it. Mira loves C is for Castle, but won't let me read J is for Jazz or A is for Atom to her. I just don't understand. I love it, though. Wonderful illustrations.

    4. I won this book in a Giveaway and it is beautiful! The illustrations are stylized and colorful, the people drawn on each page are diverse and filled with personality, and every scene related to a letter is dated so wonderfully to the mid-20th century. I think my favorite page is "U is for UFO," complete with a farmer and his cow gazing up in astonishment as a green alien whizzes by in his flying saucer.The images are straightforward and relatable while still containing a lot of extra little det [...]

    5. I received a copy of this book through First Reads giveaway.This is an adorable alphabet board book for kids. I love the 50's theming of the illustrations and the words that go with each letter. Because of the themed vocabulary I think this book could even be used with older kids and used as an example to have them then pick a theme and write their own alphabet book. I particularly love that "K is for kitchen" and while it is 50's themed, there is a picture of dad in the kitchen cooking cupcake [...]

    6. Kait and I loved this one. The pictures give you a lot to talk about and a few history lessons. The characters are diverse. There's a female scientist and a father in the kitchen making cupcakes.
