This is a great "A,B,C" book. It is sort of like "I spy with my little eye..." there are all sorts of things hidden and not so hidden in the pictures (which are just lovely to look at). my kids and I really enjoy this book.

I thought the book would have more words in it not just "A is for . . ." and a drawing on the next page.

I liked the fairy folk and nature spirits in the drawings, BUT did not like "W is for Witches with warts". I feel that it is perpetuating prejudice and intolerance toward Pagans. I also would have preferred that the Native American was not in I for Indian, but at least the drawing is not offensive (to me). The drawing is not a cartoony drawing with stereotypical imagery, like the witch with warts on a broom stick. I will be pasting a drawing over this page.

We just received this book as a gift for our toddler. The letter-themed illustrations are lovely. We've been having fun discovering the letters together.

my preschool children (3 and 4) have been very interested in the alphabet, self-initiated. they had started writing a few letters and were asking for more. i ordered this book for some ideas on presenting the letters and how they looked. i wanted to keep our "lessons" very informal for the time being, and still initiated by them. i looked at the book and liked it just fine and it did give me some ideas. however, they looked at the book too - and LOVE IT! not even any words but they ask for it for bedtime story! we'll be using this one for a while.

me and my daughter enjoy this book. The artwork is beautiful and my 3 year old likes spotting all the different letters on the pages. The people who gave it 1 star....really? I don't see anything offensive about this book. It's just adults thinking WAY too much into it. It's a beautiful book!

The pictures are soft and lovely, a true waldorf book. Each page has a main picture in the shape of that page's letter, plus other smaller pictures all over that also begin with that letter. It's beautiful! I love the colors. I'm looking forward to sitting down with my little one and looking at, finger tracing, and just enjoying being with this book.

I love this book!
It's beautifull book and the method of learning the alphabet is atractive for children.
The book have a lot of drawings, one per each letter. All drawings have many different figures and, the first letter of each thing is the same letter represented in drawing.
This alphabet and its drawings are according language but, the idea is totally replicable to other lenguages.
