Review: The Alphabet of Alphabets

This is one of the best alphabet books I have ever read!

It’s like 26 books in one, with a theme for every letter of the alphabet (B for Bugs, I for Inventions, T for Toys). And within each theme you'll find 26 relevant objects/critters/people from A to Z. That’s 676 things to spot!

But that’s not all.

Each themed alphabet is presented differently, creating a range of fun games to play as you read. 

On some pages you have to spot each object/critter/person from A to Z (because they aren’t in order). 

On some pages, there are pictures of each object/critter/person around the edges to help you spot things in the illustration. And on some pages, the objects/critters/people are listed but not labelled, so you must read the words and then find the associated picture.

But that’s not all.

On every page there is a hidden mouse to find. On every page there is a hiding Queen (or her crown). And on every page there are underpants to spot!

This is a fantastic book for kids to explore. It’s so much fun to read, and it will help kids learn the alphabet as they do. 

Filled to the brim with colourful and funky illustrations, The Alphabet of Alphabets provides hours of fun for children (and adults!). 

Highly highly recommended.
