MY SUMMARY

With Dr. Seuss’ ABC, toddlers learn the alphabet in the wackiest way possible.

Letter A

Big A   Little a…  What begins with A?

Aunt Annie’s Alligator … A …  A … A

 

Letter L

Little Lola Lopp

Left Leg

Lazy Lion licks a lollipop

A welcome deviation from all the traditional “A is for apple, B is for ball” books in the market, it uses large and colourful illustrations, funny words and repetition and rhyme to introduce the alphabet to babies and toddlers. Babies and adults alike will enjoy reading this book. It works well too, if it’s sung to children who can’t read using the “ABCD/Twinkle Twinkle Star” tune.

THUMBS UP AND DOWN

UP: The illustrations are super! They are colourful, spread generously across the book and children find them delightful. A major highlight for me was the use of rhyme and repetition. The book also uses alliteration and assonance (as well as repetition) to reinforce letter sounds. Some numbers and colours are also introduced in the book.

I love love love Dr Seuss books!! I recommend this book for all babies and toddlers.

DOWN: This book cannot be read by kids without parental assistance as a lot of ‘big’ (e.g. rhinoceros) and meaningless (e.g. zizzer-zazzer-zuzz) words are used.
