BIG R, little r,
what begins with R?
Rosy's red rhinoceros.
From Aunt Annie's Alligator to Rosy's red rhinoceros to a Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, learning the alphabet is bound to be fun with Dr. Seuss. And with this small, sturdy board-book version of his classic ABC book (Dr. Seuss's ABC), even the tiniest tots can indulge in a little alphabetical education. Each letter is featured with Dr. Seuss's unmistakably nonsensical illustrations and text: "Lion with a lollipop," "Camel on the ceiling," "Uncle Ubb's umbrella and his underwear, too." The youngest readers-to-be will get lots of letter practice with the repetitive use of each letter and the easy-to-memorize rhythmic rhymes. Soon your favorite preschooler will be reading this book aloud to you! (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

been shortened. I was extremely disappointed when my daughter was
reading it to her son and I realized the text had been changed. I wish I had
seen it before she started using it. I would have returned it.
A tip on making board books last longer - laminate with tape before giving it to your child. Make sure the bindings and edges are taped, because that is where it tends to tear most.
Colorful and not too much text that your baby gets sidetracked.
Basically goes through all the alphabet letters with words that start with each letter.
This is not the full size one. See size comparison to wipes.
The whole flow of the book was ruined for me because they took so much out. Returning it would be useless as I live far from the post office and USPS does not come to my home the gas alone isn't worth it.
Just buy the original hard cover to get the full thing.

For each letter the captial and lower case forms are shown along with a catchy rhyme to demonstrate a range of possible ways the letter might sound. For example one of my favourites is:
Big F, little f, what begins with f? Four Fluffy Feathers on a Fiffer-Feffer-Feff.
My only gripe with it is that Z only rhymes if you say Zee not Zed.
The words just seem to flow out of your mouth, and the rhythm is upbeat and fun.
The lyrics are interesting and poetic. Everytime we read the book to our daughter, we end up smiling and really enjoying it!
It is a very interesting way to be creative while going through the ABC's:)
Enjoy this book for yourself or as a gift for a loved one...
The book quality is good.
However the content is not. Its suitable for 3+ year old.
