a bit different,
This review is from: Eric Carle's Animal Flash Cards (Cards)
I really like these cards. Yes, they have some unusual animals such as xolo, urchin and quetzal but they're very attractive and fun. We teach children duck, bird, parrot etc. as different types of birds so why not let them know alligator and crocodile?
As for unrealistic colours, how many books show animals in different colours, what about Elmer? Have you ever seen a multi-coloured elelphant? No, but it doesn't matter!

The problem with using the Mexican hairless dog, Xolo, for letter X is that in Spanish it's pronounced ch-o-lo. Doesn't really fit with the English pronunciation. Unless you want your kids to call a fox a "foch" that it. These cards are confusing and expensive.
