Review: Adam Solomon's The Alphabet Book

If there is one thing my son loves, it is books. And when this one - The Alphabet Book - arrived, he grabbed his little chair in order to reach the precious pages as it waited on the counter. He excitedly
proclaimed "OOOOHH!!" as he lifted it into the air. He then grabbed my hand, pulled me into the living room, patted the couch and ran to get his blanket for snuggles during reading. You now know our story time routine.
   Of course, this book is not particularly eloquent. It is an alphabet book. That means there is one letter on each page. But rather than the standard cartoonish letters, these are pictures taken of the real world. Bits of manmade structures, pieces of nature. It is brilliant, even if the letters in the pictures are sometimes a stretch (you'll know what I mean when you see "S").
   I particularly love how the book is getting my son to pay more attention to details. He dragged me over to our kitchen hutch to show me a "U". Before this book, that never happened. This is a good learning tool. Recommended.
Full disclosure: I received this product free of charge, and received compensation, in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
