    A great book, love the whole set.

    This was my first son's (now 12) favorite book as a toddler. He loved all the pictures and we loved teaching him all the words. It was also a favorite of my second son and has down been handed won to our 18 month old. I recently bought this book and the others like it as a baby shower gift. I would reccomend it to everyone with a small child.

    I love these board books

    Great book to read to your baby or toddler. They see the letter and know that's what you are talking about. All the board books are great. I have this one for my son as well as well the board books for numbers and colors. These board books are the best. I recommend them all. They are even small enough to fit in your diaper bag or purse to carry along for entertainment. 5 stars!

    Good book for learning letters

    My son finds the pictures fun to identify. We then identify the letters that go with each picture. It has helped him become more interested in letters.

    Major disappointment

    I was very disappointed in this book. It stopped at the letter 'W'. I can only hope that I got a defective book. Otherwise, it is far from educational.

    Perfect for 1 year old

    My daughter received this book for her first birthday. She is now turning two and this, by far, has been her favorite book. She learned to identify so many different objects. We believe this book helped her learning process, to teach her other words and how to ask questions (like 'what's this mommy?'). I would highly recommend -- I'm even buying two more copies to give other one year olds as gifts.
