Review

I really wish Brenda's books were around when my now eight-year was younger.  I just know he would have spent hours swiping the pages back and forth on our iPad, quietly soaking up at her artwork." Alpha Mom

I downloaded this book because it was free. If I had paid for it, I would be a bit irritated. Ok, yes it was illustrated. A is for Apple, B is for Bug...you get the idea. The words were in REALLY tiny print next to a big A or B and were not adjustable, being a part of the illustration and not seperate. Also, there was no Agent Josephine. I would expect a children's book that calls itself A Secret Agent Adventure, to have a secret agent and an adventure. The illustrations were nice but overall the story was lacking. It provided nothing new to the usual ABC picture book. I will think twice before downloading aother Secret Agent Josephine Adventure...unless the mystery is, where is Josephine.

Well done, nice quality, brightly colored graphics! Each letter includes an object that begins with that letter - most of these are everyday items (animals, food, etc) that young children can easily identify.

Love the idea of using these over the traditional paper flashcards which seem to always be tattered or missing cards. The only thing I miss being able to do is to 'mix up the stack' to give your child more of a challenge. I suppose you could just hit the point button at the bottom and show whatever comes up sporadically, it just seems sort of awkward to do so. Of course, this is also a great book for getting started and becoming familiar with letters.

It's a cute ABC book with cute illustrations, don't get me wrong, but with that exciting title, I guess I expected something way more interesting and unique. But no, it's just another book with a picture for A, a picture for B, a picture for C. And not even ones that are themaically related to spies or anything. Just an average ABC book, nothing more. It's too bad. Josephine the Secret Agent could have been a fun theme for the ABCs!

This is a wonderfully illustrated book of ABCs. I have to admit I always like to see a frog for F (they had a fishy) and I think it was creative to use Jellyfish, Newt, Octopus, Pumpkin things that aren't usually used. The colorful items that go with the letters make it a great book to share together. Would love to see more Secret Agent Josephine

I follow Brenda's blog and thought I'd try this for my 3 year old grandson. I downloaded it to my IPod touch with no problem. He always wants to play with my IPod touch, so when I let him start the book, he buzzed right though it. He resists any "learning" tools but this was so fun that he didn't know any better! Thanks Secret Agent Josephine for such a fun book!

I've admired Brenda Ponnay's alphabet cards since she first posted the art on her blog several years ago. I was a little apprehensive about a Kindle version, since half the fun of her art is the COLOR, but even in black and white these sweet illustrations are cute and charming. Five stars!

Secret Agent Josephine's ABCs (Learn with Secret Agent Josephine)Having three kids, we've seen a lot of alphabet books. This book quickly became a favorite for a few reasons.
Being digital, I know the pages will all stay intact, so that's the first great thing about it. The illustrations are fantastic! I bought it for my 2 year old, but his 5 & 8 year old sisters love it just as much. It's a lot more original & fun than a lot of books we've seen. I think my favorite part is Q is for quetzal; I'd love to have that letter framed in our homeschool classroom!

Having followed Brenda's blog ([...]/) for a few years, I was ecstatic when she created this lovely book. I adore her illustration style and her sense of humor (U is for Underwear...that makes us all giggle every time!). I can see why the title would be confusing to people that aren't familiar with the Secret Agent Josephine blog. Luckily, Brenda created new Kindle covers for her ABC book (ABC Flashcards (An Illustrated picture book for kids)) and her Colors book (Colors: An illustrated animal picture book for children) to help alleviate any confusion and if you downloaded the SAJ cover, you should be able to download the new cover for free.
