You are never to old for a guessing game, or an alphabet book. I love the inventive approach that is used in some alphabet books to teach children something that is. . . well good for them. The book Animalphabet by Julia Donaldson, illustrated Sharon King-Chai, is a A to Z guessing game that belongs to that category of alphabet books.
Learning the alphabet is the first step towards literacy. Letter recognition is important because it helps a child to start figuring out the relationship between printed text and spoken language. And the more important a skill is the more important it is to make it enjoyable and fun.
The eye-catching artwork and the rhythmic words makes this book a pure pleasure to read. And who does not love a guessing game?
