We just added Pre-K to our Religious Education program this year and so we're still a little short of good resources for that age group. This book, however, is a charming addition. I can't say that I'm personally wild about the art style. But if you appreciate pastels—and I can imagine their appeal to many young children—then you've overcome the biggest hurdle to liking this book. It’s a typical ‘ABC’ book which refrains from obvious choices for each letter of the alphabet. ‘Q’ for example is for ‘Quiet’, which I don’t think too many adults will object to in a small child’s book, ‘U’ is for ‘Understanding’, ‘G’ for ‘Good Shepherd’ and ‘H’ for ‘Hidden Treasure’. Some great potential there for one-on-one interaction as well as classroom discussion—with even the shyest of little ones. A nice addition to any Catholic Pre-school library.
