True to its title’s claim, this is an ABC book for all ages. The youngest of listeners will enjoy eachletter of the alphabet as it is shared through an alliterativelinethat includesan introduction to an animal by name as well as a short description of something that makes it unique. For example, “Elephant: Ekua, the elephant, flaps her long ears as she cools her enormous body in the expansive river.” And this, “Tiger: Tai-Yang, the tiger, treads tactfully through the tall meadow grass to camouflage his long black stripes as he tracks his prey.”
Well past the mastering of the ABCs, slightly older readers will return to this book for the content, captivated by the vivid descriptions of how animals behave in the wild. Many letters pertain to the concept of predator and prey, and others reveal captivating animal facts, like this: red urchins can live to be 200, and cheetahs can run 70 miles per hour.
With letters, animals, culturally-relevant names, fascinating facts and alluring, alliterative lines, this book has it all, for everyone.
