I love Eric Carle and his art and this book doesn't disappoint in that respect.
The problem I have with this book is its major design flaw. You see the A page, but to see the next two pages (B and C) you must lift the entire A page up (the fold is at the top of the book). You can imagine that when you refold the page, it doesn't lay flat against the page unless you hold it down at the center binding. If you don't press it down when you turn the page, you bend the page! It's impossible to not bend the page when you are reading to an animated 15 month old... grrr. Also, having pages that are L-shaped (when unfolded they are a large backward L shape) make them VERY easy to tear. And I do mean EASY. My toddler loves to walk around with his books and this one is truly trashed. I think it has 2 or three pages remaining. But since it is his current-reigning favorite book, I have had to buy replacements that only I can hold while I read to him.
His very favorite parts of the book are the front and back pages. The front has the uppercase alphabet and the back has the lowercase alphabet and when he points at it I have to sing the ABC song. Repeatedly. :-)
A minor irritation is Carle's choice of creatures: quetzal, narwhal, xolo (how do you pronounce these words?!?), and unicorn (the only mythical creature). Aagh.

I love Eric Carle's illustrations, and every child should have an ABC primer in his library, but this book is hard to read with a baby on your lap. The pages fold up and out, and aren't easy to hold for the baby to get a good look. As a result, I don't bring it out very often.

I have yet to read a book of Eric Carle's that I didn't love. My two year old loves his books. They are so easy to read and the illustrations are very eye catching. My two year old can practically read this book on his own.

I bought this one for my 14 month old son. My son love these pictures. The L shaped flip model encourages his curiosity and at the same time it will be easy to torn apart... So it is not a durable one.... :)

Everything about this book is beautiful and definitely what you expect from an Eric Carle, but make sure you're aware this isn't a board book. The pages wouldn't be good for a child younger than 18 months, possibly two years because they're easily torn.

If you have any of Eric Carle's books, expect the same type of designs. The letters are shown in uppercase and lowercase in full (on the front/back page). The pages flap up to reveal another letter. Great book.

Good alphabet book. I love the fact that it does not have tons of pictures on each page, so it does not make kid to spread attention on too many colorful pics. It's nice that it has a letter and a SIMPLE word for it, cause sometimes abc cards and book have just ridiculous words on them, not easy to remember for kid.

Eric Carle's books are wonderful for children. Our son really enjoys lifting the flaps in this book to see what letter and animal come next. The best thing about this book is that it offers several different animals than what the Eric Carle ABC flash cards have on them. He's used to the flash cards and U for Urchins, and then he comes across U for Unicorn in the book and ooohs and aahhhs. Just a great little book.
