Review by School Library Journal Reviews

PreS-Gr 2?With clean, full-color action photographs matched to the letters of the alphabet, this title can be compared to concept books by Bruce McMillan and Tana Hoban. Each of the above-average photos depicts an activity such as "Diving," "Leaping," "Napping," or "Running." Because the featured letter is not presented separately and the concept is a bit sophisticated, this approach may not be the best choice for teaching the alphabet. However, it can be effectively used to introduce basic verbs or to spark creativity. An additional purchase for libraries looking for more challenging ABC books.?Charlyn Lyons, Wichita Public Library, KS
