Alpha Goes Retro

A Long Piece of String

An alphabet book without letters! That was William Wondriska’s innovative idea in 1963.

Just how does that work? Well, it’s a series of images tied together with a really long piece of string.

It’s fun to watch students try and find the pattern in this book. Once mine did, I was met by great big smiles and shouts of, “I get it!!!” Congratulations WIlliam Wondriska! It still works today.
