Book Review - Charley Harper's ABCs

About the Book
The Charley Harper ABC’s skinny version, is a kids board book in a condensed format featuring many additional illustrations, and a similar graphic layout.

Perfect for reading to babies and pre-schoolers, as well as for budding young readers, that will enjoy learning the alphabet through these colorful images of the animal kingdom. It includes a brief story about Charley Harper and how he began drawing as a young boy on the farm where he grew up. Colorful images like R is for Rabbit, S is for Squirrel and T is for turtle, make identifying letters and animals memorable and fun.

This charming board book is the same size as the Charley Harper 123’s book, and the two make a perfect pair as an ideal gift for a new generation of Harper fans.

My Take on the BookI loved this book! You can tell from the first moment that you open the book that the author loved animals. Each picture on each page is filled with images that draw the eye and transfix the mind. Each image is a work of art and one that are both fun and graceful. One of the images that makes me laugh is the Hen, as it looks like a Godzilla Hen and it is chasing the farmer... very fun!

My girls also enjoyed the book, especially Diva-PJ. She loved the color and fun images, and she kept reading through the book over and over.

The board book itself is very sturdy and will last a long time. I highly recommend this book to any parent!
