Although I love the concept of this book, I have found that it isn't very practical. It's a book that needs to be used under supervision and stored somewhere out of reach. The little magnets end up all over the house and the book isn't interesting enough or engaging enough to be worth the trouble. The magnets fit like a puzzle into their own particular places; they don't allow for creative play like other magnetic books. The pictures aren't particularly cute and I would describe this as a run-of-the-mill alphabet book.

My daughter loves this book so much. It is made so much better than a lot of wooden toys that fall apart at the edges. I do recomend that your child be over their "everything in the mouth" phase as the pictures on the pieces will wear off easily. Also, I wish this book had a simple latch to keep it shut without the pieces falling out.

My daughter (1 1/2) received this puzzle book as a gift and she loves it! Of all the puzzles we own this is the one she is drawn to time and time again. It is a great toy because she can occupy herself for at least 20 minutes or I can sit and play with her. I love that the puzzle pieces are just her hand size and slightly magnetized. The illustrations are also bright and colorful. I just bought this puzzle for my nephew too because it is such a great gift. The only reason I rated it 4 on durability is because the edges are slightly starting to wear, but considering that she plays with it several times a day everyday, I think it has worn well. I definately recommend this puzzle for kids this age.

I bought this book for my child just before she turned 2. This book is not only a great ABC book (because the choices to illustrate the letters are different from the norm - "o" is for octopus), but also a nice puzzle so as I am reading the caption under each picture, my child's hands are busy with the puzzle. The magnetic puzzle pieces remain in place even when the book is dropped and the rhyme (even after being read 1000 times) is still pleasant. I have bought this for several gifts and everyone else seems pleased as well.

I recently purchased this book for my cousin who is two years of age. I would not recommend this item for any child under the age of four. There are small pieces that could easily be lost or swallowed. However, the item is very colorful and a wonderful learning tool for preschoolers.

We have had this magnetic ABC book for a year now. We take it out to look at together every few weeks or so. The pieces are all intact and the book is fairly entertaining. My 2-year-old likes to take all of the pieces out, one by one, and then he will name the pictures as he puts them back in the correct positions. In my opinion, the illustrations are just OK, but then, that's not really the point of this product.

My 2-year-old book fanatic will sit and "read" his books for 45 minutes at a time, several times a week. This is not one of his favorites, but every so often, he seems to enjoy it. It's something different anyway. I like the "hands-on" approach this book provides.

This would make a great car or plane trip toy, provided that you bring a carry case for all of the pieces. This is quiet, educational, somewhat engaging and requires no batteries.

I purchased this book for my son who has Autism. This book is FANTASTIC. It has great learning value, great for dexterity (putting the pieces in) and great for teaching him to follow instructions and steps! This is one of the best purchases I have made, and it keeps his attention!

I bought this book as a sanity-saver to take on my recent 4-hour plane ride with my then 19 month old son. It served its purpose and then some. He still loves this book, over a month later.

I was surprised to read other comments about losing the pieces and having to play "supervised" with this book, as I have had no problem with this at all. Sometimes we read the book together, and sometimes he "reads" it himself. He hasn't lost a piece, yet and this book has been on many excursions with us, including the one mentioned above, where we took it across the country. (including connecting flights)

My only complaint is that the pictures aren't so great. In fact, it is very difficult to discern the animal in the "M" picture for monkey... even for me. But they're not all bad. It was still a great choice for us.
