Better than the average alphabet book. I loved how it gave more than one item for each letter, but tied them together and included a large variety of children and animals from all over the world as well as stretching a child's vocabulary and using multiple concepts. Additional items to find listed in the back enhance the book further.

An alliterative alphabet book that features ethnically diverse children and an array of animals both familiar and unique. Papercut illustratons support text and add humor. My favorite letters were O (Oliver organzies owls), P (Pasquale paints with the Panda), and R (Ricardo reads to raccoons).

An alliterative alphabet book. In the illustrations children can look for more items that corresponds with the letter on the page. The book also includes a wide variety of names from different cultures.

Adorable. Great illustrations. And a fun alphabet for older children, too, when you search for everything on each page that begins with that page's letter.

Had a hard time making sense of the nose/mouth thing on each child. A lot of names that are not widespread in my area.

A fun alphabet book where each letter is represented by a person, an animal and an activity to make short phrases.
