The Lovereading4Kids comment

Over 100 animals are beautifully illustrated in this attractive A-Z. Some are familiar – R is for robin, S is for squirrel – but many are much more exotic such as E is for echidna and U is for uakari. The rich mixture of creatures will introduce readers to unfamiliar animals while also helping them to learn the alphabet. Attributing one page per letter, there are numerous beautiful illustrations and animals for each letter of the alphabet. It really is an enchanting book for you to share with your child and learning the alphabet has never been so enjoyable! Part of the First Concept series which also includes Animal 123.

Beginning with alligator and ending with zebra, bring the alphabet to life with the exquisite artwork. Featuring more than 100 beautiful illustrations this title is a perfect introduction to the alphabet and the animal kingdom.
