Unveiling the Book

This delightful creative board book is a fun (and educational) way to expose wee ones to the letters of the alphabet.  Combining photos of fresh fruits and vegetables with adorable illustrations of animals, Mauro Gatti has invented a whole new kind of critter!  

Turn each page to a brand new letter of the alphabet featuring a sweet animal whose name begins with that letter and simple text to help kids learn that letter, the fractured animal's name, and the food.  What a genius idea!  The author has included a food facts page at the back to explain the health benefits of each highlighted food.  The book promotes healthy eating and fresh out-of-the-produce-aisle ideas!   I love the expressions on the cartoon-style animal faces with the reality of the fruit or vegetable presented creating one-of-a-kind critter mash-ups!  Awesome! 

I know that this book will be enjoyed by both young and old as it is very unique and very clever.  Kids can learn the alphabet in Spanish and French also.  I highly recommend this innovative book with its playful and fun language.
