Fantastic book, my two little grandaughters love it and can now say the alphabet all the way through. Extremely funny and a great read. Would highly recommend.

This book is brilliant and great fun. My 2 year old daughter loves it. It's a great way for her to learn the alphabet without getting bored. And you can sing it..

We were given this book as a gift. I'm afraid it sat on the shelf for a while as I wasn't that impressed when I glanced through it.

The illustrations seemed a little flat.

It references nothing real - a zizzer zazzer zuzz not yet having been found in the animal kingdom!

Also, my 3 yo son has expressive language delay and I thought it might confuse him.

Anyway, QUITE the contrary. He is far more engaged by this alphabet book than any other.

It is very cleverly designed so that in reading it aloud you linger over each letter far longer than you do in a traditional "a is for apple" type book. The little rhymes explore the soundings of the letter under discussion. It has helped my son in his letter identification and sound identification.

It is interactive and repetitive so that you can go "big B, little b, what begins with ?" and let the child fill in the blank, I tell you my son is delighted with himself when he repeats the right letter.

Not to mention what fun it is to read aloud. As another reviewer said, only then do you really appreciate it.

A definite buy for every household.

My 2 year old daughter adores this book!
She insists that we read it before we go to bed each night.
The way Dr Seuss writes is is highly amusing & that makes it easy for children to learn from them.
I think it was only after 2 or 3 readings that she had learnt her alphabet!
What makes it fun for her is the way that instead of writing 'T is for Tree' Dr Seuss writes 'Big T little T what begins with T? Ten tired turtles on a Tuttle Tuttle Tree!'
Buy it your children will love you for making learning fun.

I read this book to my kids at bedtime at least two or three times a week. It is brilliant. After having read it about 200 times I have only just realised that every page can be sung to the same tune that you sing the ABC song to. You know the song ABCDEFG.etc..Now I know my ABC, next time won't you sing with me"? It works on every page of the book. Try it, it brings a whole new dimension to bedtime "Big B, Little B, what begins with B? Barber, Baby, bubbles and a bumblebee".
