sub category. I can think of nothing that fosters thinking skills and extends experience more than books such as W is for Waves !
The art in the book is great, I think the pictures are drawn well and the colors are wonderful. But in my opinion some of the word choices are a stretch. For example, E is for Exxon Valdez? Really? I would have chosen something like Elephant Seal or Eel. But instead they chose Exxon Valdez, which I guess is an important part of history.
Along with each picture and word is a brief description to go along with it, which should be helpful for the kids. Overall I think the art and the brief stories make this a good book overall.
