Alphablock by Christopher Franceschelli
This sturdy board alphabet book by publisher Christopher Franceschelli is a great way to introduce the alphabet to your youngster. It will withstand the hands of a one to four year olds and will fit nicely into their inquisitive little hands. It is brightly illustrated with artwork by Peskimo. The three dimensional aspect of this book combined with its vivid colours ensures you want to keep turning the pages, as will your child. It has thick pages cut into the shape of each letter and parents and children will enjoy this peek-through guessing game around the letter form itself. I bought this book for my grandson Archie's first birthday and instinctively know he will love it and be happy to visit it again and again. Each letter leaps from the spread and has a beautiful illustration behind it which finished off the picture on the preceding page. I love it.
