How do you conjure a life examined? Give the truest account of what you saw, felt, learned, loved, strived for? For Amy Krouse Rosenthal, the surprising answer came in the form of an encyclopedia. In Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life she has ingeniously adapted this centuries-old format for conveying knowledge into a poignant, wise, often funny, fully realized memoir. Using mostly short entries organized from A to Z, many of which are cross-referenced, Rosenthal captures in wonderful and episodic detail the moments, observations, and emotions that comprise a contemporary life. Start anywhere—preferably at the beginning—and see how one young woman’s alphabetized existence can open up and define the world in new and unexpected ways. An ordinary life, perhaps, but an extraordinary book.

Encyclopaedia of an ordinary Life is a portrait of a life from A to Z, in which 'A' is for (amongst other things) the book's author and subject, Amy. It gathers together an informal, apparently random collection of the thoughts, memories, quirks, niggles, people, pets and places that together get straight to the heart of how it feels to live an everyday life. How else could you go from BUTTERSCOTCH, to DISHWASHER, to LACY UNDERSHIRTS, via a diagram illustrating the possible consequences of INTRODUCING A FRIEND TO A FRIEND? Amy's voice is witty, generous and rings absolutely true. Her delightful meanderings will make you laugh out loud and want to tell your friends. In a world saturated with stories of the extraordinary lives we aren't living, Encyclopaedia is a celebration of the just plain ordinary, in all its glory.

From bestselling author Amy Krouse Rosenthal and award-winning artist Gracia Lam, a "delightful" read-aloud book about a child's day, told solely through words beginning with the first three letters of the alphabet. (The New York Times) New York Times best-selling picture-book author Amy Krouse Rosenthal teams with award-winning artist Gracia Lam to tell the sweet, simple story of a young child's typical day—from morning to bedtime. Like the title, each scene is described in three-word "ABC" phrases, such as "All Begins Cheerily" and "Always Be Curious." Secret "ABC" scenes hidden throughout the artwork—as a secondary "seek and find" game of sorts—encourage multiple readings and reward close-looking. An ideal read-aloud book to read just after waking or just before bed.

Hello, You! So . . . this book is full of stuff I've always wondered about . . . Like: Did Miss Mary Mack have friends who liked other colors? Could everything important about the world be summarized in a poem that rhymes? How do Moms always know when you're about to sneak a cookie? Who hid something under the Tooth Fairy's pillow when she was a little girl? Inside you will find stories, short poems, lists, palindromes, visual treats, and random observations. Some parts are happy, some sad-ish, some silly, some serious, some crunchy, some with a soft center. You can open the book up anywhere and read. So the beginning could be the end, and the end could be the beginning. But I guess the middle is always the middle. . . . P.S. aren't Paul's drawings the best?!
