Children's LiteratureEach page of the alphabet book unfolds to reveal an animal word and sentence. Part of the animal becomes the letter. The hare's ears become an H while the vulture's wings form the letter V. Flaps on each double page alternate, one goes up while the other opens down. Simple sentences pair with each brightly colored illustration. "Newts think rocks are nice." "Tortoises love tasty lettuce." Look for simple alliteration in each sentence. Young learners should enjoy the hands-on learning. The book's clever construction and small size makes it just right for tiny hands. 2004, Reader's Digest Children's Books, Ages 4 to 6.
