I Love The Alphabet
By Dar Hosta
by Dar Hosta
This alphabet book
is silly, fun, vibrant and just what children will love. Starting
on the cover, the bold colored collages will draw children into
the text. The silly animals and text will get children familiar
with the alphabet while entertaining them. The illustrations feature
such charming characters as a llama in a leotard, wiggly wombats
and a yodeling yak. The illustrations are packed with information
that children can enjoy at different stages of their abilities.
A small ladybug is present on each page for the children to find
and some of the characters in the pictures have a line or two of
dialogue or a clever little joke to further draw readers in.
only inconsistency is in the author’s rhyming. Sometimes she
has a line such as, “Jaguars in jammies share their jellybeans
so nicely,” utilizing the featured letter as much as possible.
Then she has such text as: “Kangaroos play peek-a-boo in a
field of flowers,”which only features the letter once.
the whole, this alphabet book is a lot of fun and stands apart from
other books that are meant to expose children to letters. This would
make a fine edition to any home library as well as libraries and
