This is one of my daughter's favorite books and it also the best ABC book that I've come across. Elmo tries to decide what his favorite letter is, from "D" is for dogs, "I" for imagination, and "Z" for Zoe. Each page has the letter highlighted and a reason why Elmo likes the letter. This books has a good pace and pleasing pictures. It's a great addition for anyone trying to teach the alphabet in a fun and exciting way.

This is a soft cover book only good for pictures of Elmo. It does not have the letters displayed in bold fonts for children to learn. The cover is very misleading.

We have a lot of Elmo things around the house, including books. We also have several alphabet books since my 20-month-old has learned his letters, numbers and colors with many well-organized and beautifully illustrated books we've bought on Amazon. Because of this, I thought this book would be ideal. I was really disappointed when it came. For this level of book, it had too much text and each letter was just part of the text but not featured in the illustration! I had to take a marker and go through the book and add the letter as a feature of the illustration, myself. It still didn't help. My toddler grandson, who loves Elmo, is not fond of this book at all, although he loves his other ABC books (see Charley Harper's ABC's in particular.)

THIS IS NOT A BOARD BOOK. This is just a regular soft covered flimsy paper book so if you are looking for something to give to your toddler it's probably not the best thing. This has really been the BEST ABC book i have found. Most ABC books have no story just "a is for apple, b is for bat" that junk, but this book has content. An absolutely adorable concept in my opinion. The thing i DO NOT like is the last page. I don't know if this is a vintage picture or a lapse of artistic talent on the illustrator's side but that has got to be the UGLIEST drawing of Zoe I've seen in my life. It doesn't even look like Zoe. I have been drawing Zoe for like a few weeks and I could get her better then that.

This book is just ok... the cover is cardstock (not cardboard) making it a very flimsy little book. My son seems to enjoy it, but I don't think it will hold up very well over time.

My daughter loves this Elmo book with all the words that begin with the letters of the alphabet. Great learning tool for a toddler.

My only complaint is the pages of the book are thin and tear easily.

This book is a little disappointing, but may be appealing to Sesame Street fans. The quality of the paperback is thin and, considering the age group at which it is aimed, I had hoped for it to be a little thicker. I did give it to my granddaughter who is 15 months old and she seemed somewhat interested in the familiar characters. All in all, not a particularly inpressive product.

This is an Elmo book, so chances are good any parent of a toddler will end up owning it sooner or later. So this review is simply to reassure you that's not a bad thing.

The letters start off with the typical "A" for "apple" but also includes higher concepts like "joke" and "poem", with examples showing what joke and poem mean. The letters are colored and bolded in the text but not a huge focal point like some alphabet books. Look for another book or flash cards if you want that.

At an average of 20 words-per-page, I suggest holding off until your toddler's patience allows you to remain on a page for at least ten seconds.

My only complaint is for the last couple pages. W, X, and Y get examples in the pictures but nothing in the text. And then "Z" (spoilers!) is paired with Zoe but she only gets a tiny picture on the back cover that doesn't even look like she appears on Sesame Street these days!

This book is definitely cute and there's nothing majorly wrong with it. I purchased this for my 14 month old son. The problem, I guess that's what I'll call it, is that some of this things depicted as examples of words that start with such and such letter, are too abstract for kids under probably 3....maybe older . For instance, the letter "I" uses Imagination as the example word. I just don't know why they wouldn't have used a more easily illustrated and understood word such as "ice cream" even "igloo". They also use "love" for "L" which is nice, but again it's a bit abstract for a really small child. Other than that, the pictures are brightly colored and of course, there's Elmo. Not my favorite ABC book, but hardly awful. Would be appropriate for a child over 2 1/2 in my opinion.

I couldn't disagree with the poor rating reviews more. This book (nor is any) meant to be a stand alone book. And it's less than 4 bucks. I would imagine this book would be READ TO a preschooler and that it would be up to the one doing the reading to follow up and commentate as they went along. I found the book to be delightful, mostly because it was NOT done in the run-of-the-mill manner. For those who were somewhat disappointed, well, we will merely agree to disagree. I purchased this book for my granddaughter because my g-daughter is one of the thousands and thousands of toddlers who LOVES Elmo. I purchased this book specifically with her in mind, and it certainly met our expectations.

P.S. I found the quality of the pages to be completely in line with a four dollar book.
