This book is awesome for new and beginning readers. Not only is there letter recognition, but there is also counting and numbers up to thirteen. Children could also write how many animals there are on the page, either on a printed page of the book or a separate page. You could also use this book for animal recognition.
This would be perfect either for the stay at home mom, very young child up to preschool age I believe to help them with their alphabet and numbers. It could be used as just a read aloud book, or for a lesson in numbers and letters. (I just checked and the author has stated baby to 5 years of age – so we were on the same page there for ages!)
Pictures in this e-book range from computerized to hand drawn. While many look like clip art, and are not professionally drawn, I think young children will still love this book and won’t mind (as long as their adults can get past them). Here are a few examples of different pages from the book that was sent to me in PDF form, free of charge, in exchange for an honest review.
