Reviews - What do customers think about Alphabet Soup (Barney)?
Great for your Barney lovers out there Dec 5, 2008
this is a cute book. My two year old got more than half of the "ingredients" right. She loves this book.
Great Way to Learn ABC's Jun 22, 2008
This very simple book is a great way for young children to learn their ABC's. An actual photo of Barney, not an illustration, appears on every page facing the alphabet letters. My 2-year old loves it.
Could have been better Jan 23, 2008
Since my child loves Barney I bought several of these board books and although most of them are pretty good this one misses the boat a bit on the choices it makes in teaching children. Like the one other reviewer stated, they do use X-tra Sharp Cheese as the example for the letter X. And then there is the letter U, usually you find an umbrella or some other appropriate word, but here you'll find U stands for Unsweetened Chocolate! In a book where A is for Apple, B is for banana, etc.. it's perplexing why the author made those choices in teaching young kids the alphabet.
My [...]'s favorite book Aug 23, 2006
Right now this is my [...]'s favorite book. He loves to name and look at the different foods (some of which he knows, some of which he's just learning). Every night he wants to read the "Barney book" before going to bed.
A Sweet Alphabet book Mar 14, 2006
This book really helped my daughter recognize and learn not only her alphabet, but new foods! It helped make food shopping fun! She loves looking for squash, radishes and zucchini... now if I can only get her to eat them :-)
Anyway, so what if they used Extra sharp cheddar as the X food - it's still a sweet, endearing book with delicious pictures!
