First of all, it's a BIG book. Especially when compared to the typical board book for infants. Its size helps to present the pictures in a clear and vivid way. Also, the size makes this book feel more sturdy and able to withstand the wear and tear of long-term use. It feels a bit like those old school black & white composition books from grade school on steroids.
Secondly, the touch and feel aspect of the book makes it more entertaining than simply reading through some average book page by page. In other words, every few pages or so, your child will get to "touch & feel" a strawberry or a puppy or a teddybear. It is [for lack of a better word] very "cute". A bonus is that the rhymes aren't repetitive or annoying for parents to read. Most adults will even find themselves running their fingers over the "suds" or "paint" along with their children.
Third, the author managed to incorporate a lot of different things for you to point to and elaborate further on to your child. "Yes, you should eat ALL of these vegetables. This one is a... And that one is a ... " There's even a mirror for your little one/s to delight over. It's wisely placed at the end of the book so that your LO (little one) has something to anticipate.
Just a great, well-thought out book.
Each page is a different letter and a big picture of an item from the alphabet. One picture per spread is textured. The rhyme is not annoying and I know it by heart now. My daughters favorite page has always been the y which has a little mirror. We've read this more than any other book and she never tires of it.
