This book is great for teaching the alphabet! My son is only 2, but the consistent and easy rhyming in the book makes it easy for him to insert the letters into the story. It's an engaging story with a lot of energy, and my son really enjoys reading it...every day!
It's an excellent fun way to teach toddlers the alphabet. It is my son's favorite. the cd that came with it with Ray Charles and others reading and singing the book in various cadences was extra special. My son requests it all the time.
Also great for newborns! I knew this was great for preschool-1st grade, and then I read somewhere that books with rhythm are great in the first few months. My daughter is 2 1/2 months and she loves to listen and look at the bright colors.
