This book not only helps children to recognize letters and learn what words start with each letter, but it also allows them to think about the picture and use their imagination. They are imagining what a song is that would be played on a violin, or counting how many eggs are in a nest. They are learning more than just vocabulary skills, so it’s a great book for teaching in general.
I loved the art in these pages. Not quite engaging enough for my toddler, but I bet some would like finding the object in each painting. It seems like a pretty good catalog of artists. I wasn't familiar with Alfredo Arreguin, but his painting on the M for Monkey page was so beautiful, I wish I could find a poster of it to hang in our playroom.
Ok, I know it's Baby Einstein, but what a great way to get kids thinking about and involved in art! A different painting for each letter of the alphabet, and curious questions about each piece of art. I don't think you have to be a baby or a kid to learn art from this book.
I like how this book asks children questions about the art presented so they can start thinking about some of the different elements of art: subject, color, composition, medium, etc. The ABC-format is a good way to organize a book for this age group.
