I wanted to buy this book Alphabeasties for my little beasties for Christmas. I had it in my hand- read & reread it, but then reluctantly put it down. (As a parent, you realize very quickly that you have to draw the line somewhere, otherwise you will find yourself suffocating in an avalanche of stuff stuff and more stuff, and undoubtedly- debt. Sigh.) I couldn't get this book out of my head though- so while doing a little Easter Bunny re-con I picked it up again yesterday for a basket.
The details are modern and beautiful and I think the boys will love it as much as I do.
Not only do you get fantastically fun animals completely comprised of their own letter, but you get bonus fonts illustrating other words beginning with the letter.
Octopus is my favorite.
