The Lovereading4Kids comment

Fun to read aloud this ABC is a perfect introduction to the alphabet. From Angel Fish to Zebra, the bouncy text introduces a host of animals through wonderful easy-to-memorise rhymes. Bold and bright illustrations bring the characteristics of each animal vividly to life.

Lovereading comment:

What better way for a child to learn the alphabet than with a book that’s jam packed full of wonderfully colourful creatures and rhyming text that’s sure to grab their attention. Beginning with the Angelfish, the prettiest creature in the sea, kids will meet all manner of animals from A to Z including the slimy frog, the happy hippo, and the bouncy kangaroo and yes, you’ve guessed it, the stripy zebra. Another book by the same author/illustrator team is of course Rumble in the Jungle. Don’t miss either of them.
