Read in November, 2011

1. Genre: Alphabet picture book

2. Summary: This is such a unique book about the alphabet. It includes simple pictures hidden underneath lift-up flaps. This is such a great book for young children who can explore in order to learn.

3. Critique:
a.) This story has wonderful illustrations that make for a unique story. The beautiful illustrations are so simple but the colors and the images that are used are wonderful.

b.) The thing that makes this book so great is the lift-up flap layout. This is such a great interactive book and would work wonderfully for toddlers who are learning their alphabet and colors, etc.

c.) The flaps are framed in solid black with a simple image involving the letter and when the flap is lifted a slightly more complicated image appears of the letter of the alphabet. My favorite letter was "Z." Framed outline in pure black with a small picture replication of a zipper; when the flap is lifted you see a really cool "Z" that is cleverly outlined in zipper and it looks like jeans material.

4. Curriculum Connection: This book is perfect to use for babies, preschoolers, and kindergartners for beginning to learn the alphabet. This is a great learning tool for babies because it's interactive. I know a baby or toddler would have so much fun lifting up each of the flaps to see what's underneath. I can just hear them giggling now!
