Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
This is an activity book for preschoolers and their parents/caregivers. In each chapter, a letter of the alphabet is featured with various age-appropriate craft projects, games, rhymes, activities and suggestions for related picture books to read. An animal or bird is the theme for each letter of the alphabet and a highlighted box contains interesting information about the chosen creature. Natalie the newt is the star in the "n" chapter; the reader learns that newts are amphibians that like to sun themselves on rocks. Simple, amusing, black and white illustrations decorate the pages throughout the book and the instructional diagrams are clear.
School Library Journal
PreS-KThis appealing, easy-to-use book offers creative ways to teach the alphabet using poems, crafts, games, fingerplays, and books. Each section begins with a large contour drawing of upper and lowercase letters suitable for copying. The sans-serif, gothic letters are easy to read but the capital "I" and the lowercase "L" may confuse children since they look identical. Simple words highlighting the featured letter are interspersed along the borders, while alliterative poems showcase the letter sounds. One quibble: girls usuallly fill passive, weak, or cowardly roles in these rhymes. While Julius "jogged" and Lyle "lugged," Sue "scurried away" and Isabelle "slipped" and cried. Plenty of cheery, playful black-and-white drawings reinforce the text and clarify simple craft instructions. A useful book for parents and teachers.Paula A. Kiely, Milwaukee Public Library, WI
