Waist of Money Mar 5, 2008
The book basically says the alhabet, no pictures relating to the letters just a bunch of letters reading across both pages as if you were singing it. With pictures of the fish behind. Complete waist of money cause I could've bought a lunch instead. Don't bother with this book.
