KIRKUS REVIEW

The ABCs come to life in a touch-and-feel book.

"A is for apple that grows on a tree. / B is for butterflies, 1, 2, and 3," and thus begins a rhythmic, tactile exploration of the alphabet. Every letter of the alphabet is accompanied by an interactive activity in this large board book. These activities range from lifting flaps to feeling textures, and each letter is graphically designed to stand out individually. The book is well-intentioned, but the construction is lacking. Flaps are easily ripped out, and the binding is flimsy as well. Excitable little readers may make short work of it, but calm readers will enjoy luxuriating in each letter's individual page. This is a terrific book for readers in that sweet spot just between board books and picture books—if they can be coached to treat it gently.

A sweet if fragile introduction to the building blocks of words. (Board book. 2-3)
