The Alphabet Room is a charming board book, thicker than the norm in order to showcase what's added to the room for each of the twenty-six letters, A to Z.

Little fingers love books that let them interact. In this case, they open up a door for each letter to see which objects or animals it has added to the room - A for apples, B for bowls, and so on. Soon we have apples in bowls, cats and dogs playing with eggs, etc.. All the creatures and objects interact in ways that arouse kids' interest, and allow parents to ask questions like 'what do you see?', 'what's the dog doing?', 'what's on top of the guitar?'

As the alphabet progresses, that bare room fills up and gets very busy indeed. I especially enjoyed the newspaper that says 'Children lose interest in tv', the late addition of a window, and the way the picture changes over time. The Alphabet Room has lots of scope for discovery, questions, and learning inside its covers.
