Just read this gorgeous book, a pressie from the in-Laws. Absolutely great - Baby is a bit small to fully appreciate it yet, but I love the combination of rhymes with touchy feely bits, flaps and tags. Best of all it's fair study too, so has a chance of lasting more than five mins!

Matthew Van Fleet has created a thoroughly engaging book about the alphabet that children will enjoy from birth through kindergarten. Each letter is represented by a different animal. Each page has at least one texture for a child to explore, age with flaps to open and tabs to push and pull. The illustrations are cheerful and colorful. One drawn back, though, is that the pictures are busy and show many objects. Because of this, for the young child, the ABC concept may get lost. However, they will still enjoy the book.

Favorite of the Matthew Van Fleet books, but all are great. My son loves the texture, movement and rhyming of these books! Highly Recommend!

My nephew loved this book and it comes with some supplemental visuals for teaching the alphabet!

The pull out poster is a nice addition. I don't think my 1 year old son likes it as much as "Tails" but the illustrations are cute and it is a nice addition to our library. Took less than a day for the poor little birdies to loose their heads, but in my house that isn't surprising.

I have bought my toddler three of this author's books and can't wait to get them all. High quality with exciting colors, you can't wait to see what's on the next page. My toddler loves to feel the skin and tails of the animals.

What a BEAUTIFUL book! I've been reading to my son every night since he was born and for the past month this is the ONLY book he wants to read. He loves it! He's learning so much so quickly, it seems like there are new things too look at and learn each time we open this book. BEAUTIFUL! I will be purchasing more from this author.

I gave this to my 1 year old goddaughter because she loves books that she can touch and feel. This book has colorful characters, lots to touch and interact with, and it helps children learn their ABCS while learning the names of different animals. Perfect for little ones! (Just make sure they dont eat the pages).

My son loves this book. He is only 18 months old, but eagerly brings it to me to read to him over and over again. He loves the sticky octopus page, and enjoys lifting the flaps,pulling the tabs, and feeling all the different textures for each animal. This book even has a scratch and sniff stinkbug! It is colorful and inviting, and even I haven't gotten bored with it yet. Matthew Van Fleet is a children's book genius! In fact, the reason I'm online right now is to buy another one of his books!

Alphabet is a great book to introduce your children to letters, words, picture recognition, and textures. The illustrations are wonderful and make learning fun. The use of animals is universally welcomed by young minds and help to reinforce the concepts taught in this alphabet book. I thoroughly recommend it.
