Synopsis from Rainscoast Books:
A hands-on alphabet extravaganza! The letters of the alphabet come to life in this bright, graphic, and delightfully interactive ABC novelty board book that pairs early learning with captivating play. Just punch out the oversize neon letters and assemble the simple words featured on each spread, or spell new words. It’s the perfect way to play, spell, and learn, from A to Z!
This colourful board book brings an artistic take on the early concept book ABC Word Play. This book would be attractive and visually stimulating for toddlers as they learn the alphabet and alphabet order. There’s also a section that focuses just on the vowels. Once letter recognition has been masters, kids can use the book to focus on words. Each page outlines a few short words for kids to discover, seeing how the letters work together to form the words.
The colourful design of ABC Word Play makes it an attractive book for any child’s collection but the pop-out letters add to the fun. With four letters included on each page, readers can press out the letters to create their own words, practice letter recognition and even treat the pages like a little puzzle, putting the right letters back in the right order. ABC Word Play takes learning letters and how they build words, into a fun interactive way. Having popped the letters out myself, they fit pretty snug too so they won’t just pop out randomly on their own after the kids have started interacting with the book.
Additional Reading: It’s a Little Book.
