ABC T-Rex by Bernard Most is an appealing ABC book that follows a T-Rex eating alphabet letters and food.

Most's detailed illustrations were done in Pantone Tria markers. There is a list of things to look for at the end of the book that start with each letter of the alphabet. My favorite images include the cover, b, f, g, j. k, l, p, s, u, & w.

This alphabet book combines ABC's, dinosaurs, and food in a winning recipe. Both upper and lowercase letters are shown for each letter. The list at the

ABC T-Rex written by Bernard Most was a book that I actually enjoyed reading. And I will tell you why, it is funny, cute, and had bright colors. This book is about a T-Rex dinosaur that eats every single letter of the alphabet and he describes how he eats it, the texure of it, and how it tastes to him. When a little kid reads a book, they need to have interest in the book. This book hold their attention, keeps them interested, and sercretly, teaches them about the alphabet! Little kids love anim ...more

The book was very educational and intresting. If your having trouble with the alphabet then this is the book for you. From letters A through Z this book has it all. It is great for beginners from ages 3 to 6, they will learn much more just by reading them the book. The book also has many colorful bright pictures like food, objects, and animals that will itrest people to read the book.

Not the best book, but a good way of learning. Learning the ABCs for children who want to learn or parents who want to teach their children the alphabet. Personally, I enjoyed the book it's not that bad but definitely a good book to teach kids something. It has animals and reptiles in it maybe kids like things like that and may grab their attention.

This book was cute and funny. I would have loved this book if i had read it when i was small. You could give this book to your child and they could learn their abc. This book is kinda of challenging for a little kid because it had pretty big words. I also liked how it was really colorful and fruity . Overall recommend this to read this to a kid.

This is a fun book about a dinosaur who gets caught up eating all of his letters of the alphabet. This book finds food-related words to help describe everything that T-Rex is eating throughout the story. The book also includes a little scavenger hunt if you'd like to spend more time on the alphabet and words that start with certain letters. This is a fictional book although it is very informative because, for example, I do not think that Dinosaurs eat pizza.

My six year old is uninterested in this book, which is a pity, because it has just the kind of wordplay he enjoys.

The T-Rex likes letters. He likes to eat them. So he eats his way through letters of the alphabet, described with adjectives beginning with that letter. As a bonus, other elements beginning with that letter appear on each page. (A list appears in the back, so you can play spot the word with impunity.)

The colorful, rounded letters and character and the domestic setting will probably b

My nephew is *finally* starting to become aware of letters, and he's starting to be able to identify some of them. I really liked this ABC book because it was bright, it had a T-Rex (which my nephew thinks is cool), and because the letters were clearly presented without a lot of fancy schmancy clever wordplay to distract from what I wanted my nephew to see (a dinosaur eating each letter of the alphabet). This is just a great ABC book for toddlers through preschool kids. The boy and I enjoyed it.

This is what I look for in an ABC: capital and small letters represented, examples of each letter that teach the most common sounds of the letter, details children can find to expand their learning, humor, child appeal (especially boys), and a page with the entire ABC so I can practice the ABC song with the children. This book has it all! --not only the entire capital alphabet but the entire lower case alphabet on one page for singing! We all had fun with this book.

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it!
Hands down the best ABC book I have read!
Each page highlights upper and lowercase letters and offers a full, colorful page of items that start with said letter. The items featured range from the obvious, to the slick and sly...Each time we read the book we found more and more applicable items in the illustrations.
