This brilliantly innovative book offers an engaging new way for children to discover and learn letter sounds and first words. By running their finger along large, grooved letters, children can explore the shape of each letter. Lift-the-flaps on every sturdy page further reinforce easy learning.

In this pleasing alphabet book/writing lesson, capital letters are cut into sky-blue pages and marked with arrows, allowing readers to trace them with their fingers. Each letter stands for a different animal or object, which appear on flaps, with additional items hidden beneath. Paired with Birkett's bright illustrations, the interactive components ought to give beginning writers a head start on their ABCs. Also available: 1 2 3: Count With Me.
