Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is a rhyming, playful alphabet book that will help teach young kids their letters, and put them to bed with smiles on their faces. The rhyming examples teach the letter names, more than the sounds they represent.
Is It Any Good?
This is a short, simple, happy alphabet book. Kids will like its easy rhyming cadence and the engaging, humorous illustrations. The letters with their funny little faces really come alive, just like real bouncy children. And clever examples, silly details, and patterns make each page enjoyable.
Parents will have fun reading the story with their early learners before bed. Early readers especially will like searching the pages for letter sounds, and coming up with some of their own. Older kids will enjoy the way the letters are decorated and might feel encouraged to draw their own versions of block letters. This SLEEPY LITTLE ALPHABET definitely brings a little fun for the whole family.
Dancing, playful letters with spindly little arms and legs and big googly eyes make this book very playful and rambunctious. Done in watercolor, pencil, and collage, the colors are subtle and each page is full of fun.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
