    One thought on “A Fabulous Fair Alphabet

    1. Anna Smithberger

      A nice alphabet book that is sure to be popular with fair-loving families. Not as much for me since I'm not a big fan of the state fair--too hot, too crowded, too focused on having me pay outlandish prices for food on a stick.

    2. Amy Rae

      I've yet to read a Debra Frasier book I actually like (On the Day You Were Born is a little woo-woo for my tastes), and A Fabulous Fair Alphabet hasn't changed that. I respect her work, but it's not enjoyable for me; I'm starting to think maybe we just aren't a reader-author match.I guess this book's use of typography is clever, but it's also overwhelming to the point of feeling like an assault upon the eyes. If you want a book with visuals that evoke Minnesota's State Fair--bright, lively, over [...]

      Fun for the summer season--would definitely get kids excited for the State Fair. I found the book almost overly-stimulating--my eyes didn't know where to look on the page. Also, a bit strange that it ended with "zucchini," especially since the last letters were winding you down--"Exit," "Yawn," and then picture-of-mother-and-son-cutting-zucchini-while-falling-asleep?Sort of strange.

      A Fabulous Fair Alphabet / written and illustrated by Debra Frasier -- New York : Beach Lane Books, c2010. (34 pages)SUMMARY: Its a book of things at the fair - made of letters from the fair! (bookjacket)REVIEW: The title and the bright colors of the cover made me pick the book up -- I love fairs and this book looked promising. As I opened the book the endpages were filled with lots of photos making me wish that I was there at the fair (especially to get a fair hot dog). However, even though eac [...]

      By just looking at the cover I thought this book would be really good and cute for kids to learn the alphabet. I was very much disappointed and did not really like this book at all. Without a plot or characters, this book attempts to represent the alphabet in a fair setting. It, almost, successfully does this. The letters are very fair and carnival like; very colorful and in crazy fonts with crazy boarders. A majority of the letter represent words or phrases associated with a fair, that a kid wo [...]

      The State Fair is always exciting, especially as a young child. The lights, bold colors, rides, and yummy looking food are all portrayed in the pictures in "Fabulous Fair Alphabet." Each letter is highlighted by an aspect of the State Fair. I think this helps children to be excited about the alphabet and it also gives children something to associate the letters with. This association can assist the kids with recall. Also, all of the letters on the page are arranged in the shape of the word that [...]

      Frasier's skill as a paper artisan shows up again in A Fabulous Fair Alphabet. The concept of this book led Frasier to develop an actual event at the Minnesota State Fair. Families were encouraged to scour the fairgrounds for letters of the alphabet. Sheets were turned in, crafts were created, and an "Alphabet Photo" stand allowed participants the opportunity to create their name and/or interesting moniker using large letters held in place by pool noodles. Frasier is a true craftsman; painstakin [...]

      Typography lovers unite. Here is a shining star in process. Debra took photographs of real alphabet letters at the MN State Fair. This aesthetically amazing book is not all. Debra now has a booth at the state fair where children can come to learn about literacy and art through real art experiences. And she's pulled in other writers, artists and librarians to make sure that the state fair has more than hot dogs for children but literature too. Examples of the games they play just see her website. [...]

    9. Ina

      This book has amazing illustrations and fully captures all the color and excitement of a day at the fair. The kids studied the pictures and reacted to their favorites (like "C" - cotton candy) As a storytime book, I felt it was a bit flat, in spite of the images. We all decided that using "Zucchini" as the last item was somehow wrongd even the kids expected the last image to be sleeping children driving home with "Z's" circling their heads"X" stood for exit, after all, and to follow that by Zucc [...]

      Alphabet letters of all sorts of shapes and sizes and styles—from blinking neon ones, to unusual old-style graphic ones to rustic hand-painted ones have been photographed and collaged together into an exuberant, eye-popping, letter-and-word-finding tour of the glories of the state fair. Bursting with with bright, bold illustrations of favorite fair elements like dill pickles and Ferris wheels and midway games, here is an alphabet-exploring adventure like no other!

    11. Michelle

      Loved the bright illustrations. Great for print awareness and letter knowledge as each letter is presented a multitude of ways. This book would definitely be a fun way to introduce letters of the alphabet to a child, but it runs dangerously close to sparking the same type of overstimulation generally experienced as a result of the "real" fair! :) I think kids will *love* this book.

    12. Tricia

      There's a lot going on in this title illustrated boldly in paper collage-style. Each letter of the alphabet is displayed in a fair setting from the "A" of the arena to the "Z" of zucchini on display. Easily distracted children may be overwhelmed but most will enjoy the busyness and brightness of this concept book.

    13. Vivian

      Even an alphabet book can be featured in a library story time. Ask lots of questionsWhat's an "arena"? What animal's shadow (silhouette) do you see through the "barn" door? Who likes "cotton candy"? What do you like better -- cotton candy or "dill" pickles? and so forth.The generous size of this book made it easy for all the children to enjoy the pictures.

    14. Nicole

      This isn't one to buy for the text, but for the illustrations. If you've ever attempted paper-collage, you'll appreciate this ABC book. The artist uses alphabets from amusement park attractions and paper collage to create a great fair-themed ABC book.

    15. Donalyn

      Paper collage letters in various styles dominate each page of this alphabet book about fairs. I found the pages too chaotic and often had to search for the word chosen for each letter. Many of the word choices didn't work like zucchini and outstanding. An interesting concept that fell short.

    16. Allyson

      This was a good book that would help students learn the alphabet. The book has good illustrations of fair scenes and animals. Students would love just flipping through the pictures and maybe creating there own story.

    17. Connie Klever

      This is a nice kind of "eye spy" version of the alphabet. Letters appear on each page as a sort of county fair inspired collage. Interesting to look at, and very bright big pages. Good read with a single child or small group. Nice for R2R

    18. Misty

      This is another alphabet book that shows the letter and a word that starts with that letter. This book seems just a little too busy for someone who is just learning their alphabet. I don't know that this book would be a first pick for me.

    19. Ms. B

      Can't get enough of the Great Minnesota Get-Together? This is the book for you. Relive your memories in this homage to the Minnesota State Fair. This book will make you want to take your camera to the Fair.

    20. Raven Grider

      This could be used in a pre-kindergarten setting, maybe for an even earlier grade. There are only one to two words used for each letter of the alphabet. The illustrations would be very engaging for early readers!

    21. Nanci Booher

      So as far as abcs go,this is an effective book to show the different ways in which the letters could be written and it used a fair theme to do so. I think that as we are learning our letters at storytime, this would be a great book to put on display.

    22. Linda

      I had such high expections for this book because Frasier's books about spelling and the water cycle were so perfect to incorporate into school curriculum. This one was really just a book with the alphabet letters using illustrations from a fair. So disappointed!

    23. Kerry

      I found the photos to be too busy and chaotic in this story. For an alphabet book, the letter were not very clear for a young child to see.
