Published 2008.

This colorful ABC book offers a picture of an animal that is shaped like or posed like the first letter of its name (i.e. the alligator is posed like a capital A). Then the reader pulls a tab to reveal the letter and the name of the animal printed in regular font.

The pictures are engaging for young children.

Dislike 1: the use of some imaginary animals - dragon and unicorn. I always think it is confusing for young children when ANIMAL books include examples like these. No wonder ki

I just finished reading the alphabet picture book "Alphabet Animals: A Slide-and-Peek" by Suse MacDonald. I loved this picture book for young children. Each page consists of an animal that starts with the letter it is representing and is also illustrated to look like the shape of the letter. Each page has a page you pull out that has the letter represented with the name of the animal. I loved all the colors and illustrations. I feel like many young children would find this book very enjoyable. I ...more

This is a fun and unique idea for a children's book about letters--the letters are designed as animals (or the animals are designed to be in the shapes of letters). It encourages children to see beyond just the animal and look for something more. Then, they can slide out the insert to see if they are right about both the letter and the animal. It is colorful and exciting--I even learned something new!

This is a good idea, I think, and for the originality that Suse MacDonald brings to an old idea, I would grant this book one and a half stars. There are some amusingly positioned animals in the ranks of the alphabet, as well as some letters that are represented by animals so obscure that I'm not sure if I had ever previously even heard their names.

I like this book because each animal is in the shape of letter. You can pull th etab and see the letter.

This a fun book for letter recognition and it's great for building vocabulary since many of the animals are out of the ordinary.

My baby listened and looked at the entire book. Too bad he wanted to grab it! I'm saving it until he passes the paper tearing phase! The sliding parts can be stiff but it is totally worth buying.

This is a great concept for an alphabet book with wonderful illustrations. I don't think the slide-and-peek aspect will last long in a public library though :-P

The illustrations are fabulous and the majority of the letters have easily identifiable animals. However, some like entry for x, kids will identify as a "bird" rather than "xenops."
