Publisher Comments:

Twenty-six letters; 26 animal friends! From Armadillo, with its long sticky tongue, to chimps that greet each other with kisses, to the slow-swimming manatee and plant-munching zebra, this delightful board book from the American Museum of Natural History introduces children to both the alphabet and some of the most interesting creatures displayed in the museum's galleries. Featuring extra-large letters, fun facts, and bright, eye-catching photos on every page, ABC Animals will enchant and teach preschoolers.

Review:

"In this addition to the American Museum of Natural History's series of oversize alphabet board books, 26 animals appear in photographs as they interact with large capital letters. A lime green tree frog uses the letter F as a launching pad, while a sloth dangles from the letter S. Short phrases describe characteristics of each animal: 'No two giraffes have the same pattern of spots. Each giraffe is unique,' and a jellyfish 'can be as small as your fingernail or as big as 100 feet long!' A lively and cheerful primer for readers just becoming familiar with both the alphabet and the animal kingdom. Ages 2 — 5. (Sept.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
