For example: Under A, we are shown an Alligant and asked "which two animals could I be?" Since its name has alligator and ant in it, and since it has the head of an alligator and the body of an ant, children will with a little thought be able to answer the question. Similarly, a Comow is a camel and cow.
Each picture has a two-line comment in poetry. For example: The Hippodile is a hippopotamus and crocodile and has the two lines
Sometimes I go for a swim just for fun
But the best thing to do is to laze in the sun.
The last two pages of the book shows the pictures again and reveals, for those who could not guess what two animals were shown in the single body, and gives the 26 answers.
This is possibly the most creative manner in which to introduce learning the alphabet for youngsters that is available in children’s books. Not only does the concept work – letter by letter two animals are illustrated and become one silly invention – a visually satisfying manner for emphasizing learning each letter of the alphabet while allow children to make discoveries about creativity. The text is delivered in fine rhyme, excellent illustrations are presented to the reader, and a question posed – all incorporating a specific letter of the alphabet. For example (and for first page starters), for the letter Aa – ‘I have great big eyes and a silly smile, With my six little feet, I can walk for a mile – Which two animals could I be?’ The illustrations show a strange and fun alligator and ant combination – and the answer to the question is ‘Alligant’. Each page produces entertainment, problem solving, laughs and creativity and learning the letter.
Some of the creative silly animals that accompany the learning are Butterbear (a bear and bumblebees), Dock (a dog and duck), Frox (a fox and a frog), Ottepus (otter and octupus), Liobug (lion and ladybug), Snunk (snake and skunk) and on and on throughout the alphabet. And the last pages share the fusion of the animal types created in the book – a fine visual learning technique.
The pleasures of this debut book are many – the rhyming is excellent and entertaining, the use of the imaginative silly animals to emphasize a letter of the alphabet is a touch of genius, AND we have learned in a very fun manner how to recognize every letter in the alphabet!
Trent and Ashlee have created a very successful children’s learning entertainment book, and with quality such as this we can only hope they will continue creating equally entertaining lessons. Highly recommended. Grady Harp, April 17
Not all the animals are so simple of course, and the final pages offer an authors’ key, with animals as potentially obscure as the narwhal and the echidna, as well as those more familiar ones. I love how so many of the pairings use the same initial letter. I love the brightly inviting illustrations. And I love the idea—a book that kids and adults will delight to share and laugh over. All the fun of “what do you get if you cross an A with a B” jokes, all perfectly accessible for kids.
Disclosure: I was told where to find it and I love it.
It is fun to read it with my three year old daughter because she recognizes the different animals. She loves pointing things out in the illustrations. My husband couldn't stop laughing at the combination of the animals with their new names. I'd say the book was a hit in our home!
