Great book in textures, colors and moveable panels, so children can learn about the alphabet associated with a letter of the alphabet.

This is my favorite of van Fleet's creative interactive books. Not only does it have his typical assortment of textures to feel, fold-out flaps, and moving pieces, but it also has an alphabetic search-and-find at the end and a pop-up poster included. The theme of the book is the alphabet, so each spread features animals that correspond to the appropriate letter, with roughly four letters across the two pages. The clam with its squishy texture and the octopus with its sticky tentacle are some of our favorite animals, and we also like the velvety giraffe that folds up to extra heights. The illustrations are his usual friendly animals, bright and cuddly, with a lot of details on each page. At the end of the book, the author presents three more animals for each letter of the alphabet for the reader to find, animals that also begin with that letter. This book is great fun, and the biggest challenge is keeping it away from my girls when we're not reading it together, because they like it so much that they love it to pieces (we are already on our second copy). This book, and others by the author, are excellent avenues to showing children the joy of reading. ( )

This alphabet book would be great for children in pre-k - kindergarten. This will be great to have in one of the learning centers in a classroom. Each page is filled with colorful images, different textures, and a Alphabet that corresponds with a particular animal. Children will have fun while learning about the alphabets.

Alphabet is a great book to introduce the alphabet with animals, textures and colorful images. Textures, moving parts and pop-ups scatter the pages to engage young children. ( )

Matthew Van Fleet has created a thoroughly engaging book about the alphabet that children will enjoy from birth through kindergarten. Each letter is represented by a different animal. Each page has at least one texture for a child to explore, age with flaps to open and tabs to push and pull. The illustrations are cheerful and colorful. One drawn back, though, is that the pictures are busy and show many objects. Because of this, for the young child, the ABC concept may get lost. However, they will still enjoy the book. ( )
