Educatioal and Well Written May 28, 2008
What a FUN book! My two-year-old son loves this book and I love to read it to him. The words have a great cadence and I find myself singing each page! The pictures are very primitive which is nice (no sensory overload) and it helps young children to learn their alphabet. The story is super cute and the author uses great imagery. Although the illustrations are primitive, you can imagine these letters racing up the coconut tree! It's a wonderful book for any child's collection!
All-time FAVORITE kid's book! May 23, 2008
I remember reading this to my youngest sister so it brings back a lot of good memories.
This is the MOST FUN book to read. I giggle EVERY time I read it!!
Plus, you can't go wrong with a book that educates! (Alphabet)
LOVE this bookf May 5, 2008
This is a terrific alphabet book with a fun rhythm to it. My children love it! The reading on the CD by Ray Charles is dull.
BEST ABC Book By Far Apr 24, 2008
I love the fun rhythmic way this book can be read. It was very well thought out and goes over each alphabet twice in a manner that would rivet a child's attention to the story. This ABC book would be quite difficult to top. I remember this book from my own childhood.
Love it! Apr 21, 2008
Great book for children of all ages, one that you'll read over and over again!
