The Invisible Alphabet

Written by Joshua David Stein, Illustrated by Ron Barrett

Invisible alphabet? What good is an invisible alphabet? It’s more about words that represent things that aren’t there. . . words like vanish and gone. It was interesting to imagine what word would represent the next letter in the alphabet. The kids in 2nd and 3rd grade enjoyed it a little more than the kindergarteners and 1st graders, but the art is intriguing to everyone. Ron Barrett uses mainly the color orange to represent the things that aren’t visible. It challenges the readers to use their imagination to fill in the blanks in this book. Clever idea.
