The Little Crooked Bookshelf on #ReviewsDay

Search-and-Find Alphabet of Alphabets
by A.J. Wood and Mike Jolley
illustrated by Allan Sanders

(This week's #ReviewsDay pick is from cottager Kara LaReau.)

What it's all about...
It's a compendium of 26 different illustrated alphabets — D is an alphabet of dinosaurs, H is an alphabet of hats, N is an alphabet of a neighborhood, etc etc.

Why I love it...
My kiddo loves anything alphabet-related, and he loves books he can pore over. It's as if this title was made for him!

Sample illustration...

What's the kid-appeal?
It's a book you can read over and over again, and notice fun, new details each time. (And at the back, you can find even more search-and-find prompts!)

What's the grownup appeal?
It's guaranteed to keep your kiddos occupied and engaged, and it doesn't have a screen!
