Kids learning to read can’t resist these interactive flaps and adorable illustrations. Cute and friendly animals are placed next to colorfully illustrated lettered flaps. This graspable padded-cover book will encourage kids to lift-the-flaps and learn their ABC’s by associating letters with words. A is for Alligator, B is for Bunny. . .the fun and learning never stops with these delightful animal buddies!
Zoo inhabitants put on the charm in this gentle alphabet offering. Each of the 26 letters is represented by a character worthy of embracing. Each page is divided into brightly colored quadrants, with an animal and its letter occupying squares next to each letter. The capital letter is on a flap; lift the flap to reveal the lowercase letter on the other side and the name of the animal. …The solid bookmaking and padded cover make this appropriate for the youngest audience. Probably the book's greatest asset is its muted palette, which works with the graphically abstract animal shapes to provide effective but quiet contrast. An eclectic and soothing selection.
