Spot's ABC: A First Alphabet Book by Eric Hill- ESSENTIAL

Hill, Eric Spot’s ABC: A First Alphabet Book, 12 pgs.  Warne; Board book edition, 2013. $6.99.  BOARD BOOK.  Eric Hill’s incredible characters and bright colors will draw children into this great ABC book.  Whether it’s an elephant giving himself a bath or Spot enjoying an ice cream cone, children will explore and gain letter recognition while reading this board book.  This is a great bedtime story book as well as Z is represented by a zebra tucked safely into bed and saying “Night-night!” to the reader.  I liked the repetition of all the letters of the alphabet on the last page.  This gives parents a chance to not only review each letter would be useful in playing “can you point to the letter P, etc” games.This book could be used in the classroom at a center or as an example of how students can make their own ABC books.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  ESSENTIAL. Reviewer: SL.
