Love TSH. Love ABCs. Not my favorite TSH or ABC, but two greats together.
Aug 13, 2009 Rebecca rated it it was amazing
Great illustrations- fun book for thinking about what you're seeing and how those things might be related to the letter it is illustrating. There's a cheat sheet in the back, too.

Great book to add to active imaginations. It allows for open-ended questions that allow the students to connect to the picture's content clues to the understand the letter.

Beautifully illustrated--each colorful pix is essentially framed by the letter it represents.
