- I would strongly suggest that you buy "Alphabet" or any Matthew Van Fleet book from an online retailer. These books do damaging rather easily when played with young hands. As a result, almost every copy I saw at a box store had damage,
- A great gift for your child or for a niece or nephew that happens to have a birthday.
- Comes with a wonderful "Alphabet" poster that has a variety of tabs that reveal an animal. See the video review for an example. The poster alone is nearly worth the price of the book.
- Lots of texture, animation, tabs and silly situations for the animals.
Final Verdict - Probably my new favorite Van Fleet book - very highly recommended.
What I really like the most about this book is that it can "grow" with your child. Very young children will enjoy touching the different textures and making the kangaroos "jump". Older children will enjoy looking back through the book for the challenge of finding other alphabet word pictures that the author provides in the back of the book. You also get a 21-inch color poster included with the book that has pop-ups of the animals with corresponding letters that you can use to teach letters (or animals for that matter) to hang in an older child's room. A very worthy investment for your home library.
So what exactly ARE all of these texture words? "Scaly", "bristly". "scratchy", "wrinkly", "bumpy". "velvety", "scruffy". "furry", "whiskered" "sticky", "soft & squishy", "rough", "hairy", "fuzzy", "shaggy", "silky"... just terrific! Other nice teaching features other than its "Alphabet" title include colors (green, yellow, pink, blue, gray, orange), other descriptive words that are nicely represented ("shimmery" & "shiny".Read more ›
