K is for Katie and O is for her baby brother, Olly, as Shirley Hughes’s beloved pair introduce ABCs in everyday settings that little ones will recognize.

From airplanes high in the sky to zzzzz for sleepy time, Katie and Olly’s daily pastimes offer plenty of ways to learn their letters. There’s L for the leaves you can wade through when they fall from the trees, P for the play-group where it’s fun to jump on big cushions, and V for the vacuum cleaner that vroom-vroom-vrooms when Dad cleans the carpet. Narrated in Katie’s voice and depicting the simple pleasures of a familiar world, My First ABC shows both upper- and lowercase letters and ends with an alphabet on the final spread illustrated with an alternate set of images.
Shirley Hughes (1927–2022) was the author of more than fifty children’s books and the illustrator of some two hundred more. One of the world’s best-loved writers for children, she received the Kate Greenaway Medal twice and was awarded an OBE for her distinguished service to children’s literature. In 2007, her book Dogger was voted the U.K.’s favorite Kate Greenaway Medal–winning book of all time.
