Dr. Seuss's ABC (Board and Picture Book)

Dr. Seuss’s ABC board book is the correct size for four-years-old and younger children’s small hands. Infants and toddlers are able to read the book on their own. The thick pages will not tear. It can withstand children throwing and chewing the book.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC, An Amazing Alphabet book, is a Bright and Early board book. It is an adaption of the picture book of the same name. In both books, a short poem accompanies each letter of the alphabet. Dr. Seuss’ whimsical characters decorate the pages. There is the usual rhythm and rhymes loved by children.

A positive aspect of the board book is that the letters are upper and lowercase. So many books are uppercase only. This causes many children not to recognize the lowercase letters. The letters stand alone. For example for M, it looks like this M...m...M. This allows the parents and teachers to point out the difference of each case. Plus, they can practice the sound of each letter.

My only drawback from truly recommending the Dr. Seuss’s ABC board book format is the size of the letters. I worry whether infants and toddlers can clearly see the letters. They are the size of the letters on this page and not as dark. The letters in the picture book are much larger and darker, therefore much easier for infants and toddlers to see and read.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC, is great in the picture book format. Remember infants and toddlers will tear the thin pages in a picture book. Get a different alphabet board book with large, bold letters for the little ones. Use the picture book format with five-years-old and older children. They take better care of picture books.
