It's a cute book that goes through the alphabet with different animals. There were a couple letters that I thought were ridiculous and didn't make sense, but the rest are sweet, some are funny. The book is small enough for my toddler to hold and turn the pages. Durable for how rough she can be on her toys, too. It will be great for when she starts to learn the alphabet. It's a nice way to start getting her familiar with their shapes and sounds.
Do you love Sandra Boynton as much as I do? I think this woman has the greatest sense of humor. Her animals are wonderfully drawn, and her sayings are clever. I have a cup with a Sandra Boynton critter on it, and the words under the picture say "I love your fuzzy little heart." Now, don't you have to love an artist with that kind of humor? AND I love my little mug, too.
We have a couple different alphabet books and this is my favorite. There are simple 2-line statements (A-aardvark admiring, B-beavers ballooning) for each letter accompanied by a cute Boynton illustration. Occasionally she's thrown in a funny one (U-uglybirds being ugly). There are 2 letters per page. It has a soothing rhythm when you read it. Love :)
