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.
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.
