James Diaz and Melanie Gerth continue their My First Jumbo Book series with this interactive, eye-popping look at the alphabet.
From a red apple to a zebra "who is visiting the 'A-to-Z Zoo,' " the letters in this jubilant concept book keep the alphabet dazzling through flaps, movable parts, pop-ups, texture elements, and more. Kids can spot a lazy leopard resting in a tree after lifting the flap in "L"; they'll move a yo-yo and a submarine up and down with the tab pulls In "E"; an elephant rears its happy trunk as it looks toward a closed fan (that can open) and a pink flamingo in "F"; and after spinning a helicopter's propeller and touching an orangutan's fuzzy tummy, readers can check out the pop-up zebra's many animal photographs in a bright and beast-filled last spread.
Loaded with objects to help kids learn letters, this jumbo book will be a jumbo hit at home. Each spread is jubilantly decked out with Diaz and Gerth's welcoming artwork, coaxing young readers into saying the words and scanning the pages for more objects to see and touch. An alphabet-learning can't-miss. Matt Warner
