Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 5; read yourself: 6 to 8

Age of Child: Started reading with 4½-year-old child.

Young Reader Reaction: Our preschooler loved this book. The antics were humorous and there were questions to be answered.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a terrific alphabet book. It may not be the first one you introduce, but it is a must after your child has learned and can recognize their letters.

Pros: The poetry is engaging, using the letters IN words not just highlighting initial sounds adds dimension, complexity, and value to this book.

Cons: None, really.

Borrow or Buy: Buy! The format is such that it offers complexity that will be valuable to pre-readers, early readers, and even those struggling with reading. At 2.99 it's a STEAL!
