About the Book

Acclaimed and bestselling photographer Tana Hoban’s timeless 26 Letters and 99 Cents is two books in one! Both an alphabet book and a counting book, this wordless classic uses colorful photographs to teach important concepts. Perfect for visual learners! 

Simple, clear, practical, 26 Letters and 99 Cents teaches the most basic building blocks of life skills. Sit together with a child at home or in a preschool classroom and use coins and an alphabet sheet alongside this book to enjoyably teach ABCs and counting.

In a starred review, School Library Journal said, “Children will enjoy manipulating money, numbers, and letters to correspond to the photographs in this book.”

Readers can start from either side of the book. “Hoban’s crisp photo-essay presents images of upper- and lower-case letters beside objects beginning with that letter; reverse the book, and numerals are shown alongside coins that total that amount,” explained Publishers Weekly.
