Alphabetti Spaghetti

ABC Pasta: An Entertaining Alphabet by Juana Medina. Viking, 2017. 9781101999783.

abcpastaI’ll admit I’m not a connoisseur of alphabet books, but I am a big fan of pasta. Photographs of different types of pasta form parts of the different circus acts in the big show. There are ones all kids will recognize (fettuccine, spaghetti, and macaroni) and others they’ll probably be seeing for the first time here (integrale, nero de seppia, quadrucci). It’s pretty stinkin’ cute.

Will it make kids expand their tastes beyond buttered noodles? Find out with the easy recipe for Cacio e Pepe at the back of the book.
