Learn the ABCs in a new way
What are ABCers? They re Book readers and Friend greeters, Lap sitters and Race runners. When these friends go to the park to play, they sing and giggle, jump and tiptoe all the way from A to Z. Children will love following them throughout their very active day, as well as coming up with all the ABC things that they can do themselves, too
Filled with action, "ABCers" encourages learning, as well as play.
