Format: Hardcover
This is an unusual alphabet book: (1) Animals show how letters are made. Therefore the child can trace each letter using his/her finger and follow the correct format. (2) The letter being displayed isn't always at the beginning of the word -- as an example: a lion watches a racoon use wallpaper strips to make the letter N. Different animals co-operate in making letters: a tiger and a turtle use tinkertoy blocks to make the letter T.

I found a copy of this book at a thrift store a few years ago and I liked it so much I ordered another copy. My son is obsessed with the alphabet so we own a lot of ABC books and this is one of the better ones. The pictures are beautiful and clever and it has a cool vintage look also. It is fun to find all the things on each page that start with/contain each letter and there is a list in the back too. This book really has a lot going on.

This book is displayed at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington D.C. It is a good book to teach the ABC's with ELLs.

The problem with this purchase is not that Ed Emberley doesn't make a great book... it's because this is not the book we thought. It would have been nice if they'd created a "peek" for this one, so we could have seen this is not the correct book.

I've been looking for a book one of my teachers used when I was little to teach me to draw pictures using letters. This was NOT it. I own a couple of his other books, and they are great. What's up with this one? IDK! Don't waste your money on this one!
