Alphabet books in foreign languages are good reads for children (and parents!) learning a new language. Typically, alphabet books have short, easy to read phrases related each letter reinforcing foreign vocabulary that begins with that letter.

El Abecedario Fantástico de Patam El Elefante by Montse Gisbert is a charming alphabet book to add to your collection. In Spanish, the alphabet is called "el abecedario." The whimsical poetry and artwork is silly with a touch of eccentricity. Patam is a tad extravagant and has some amusing ideas to teach your children the alphabet. And sometimes, just like our children, he can be a little bit naughty...
