To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is a delightfully colorful and pleasant book that I think would be well suited for a child who is learning his or her letters and loves animals. The book is just as you would imagine from the title; it presents a page with 7 to 10 animals and asks the reader which of the animals starts with a particular letter. It formulates the questions in the “I spy with my little eye” phraseology. Immediately after the question page is the answer. The pictures of the animals are illustrations, so they are not realistic (but they are actually very cute). It would certainly be a good idea to go through this book with the child and have him or her name the other animals in the picture. Conversely, you could first have them think of animals that start with the particular letter on the page and then have them see if they can pick out any of the animals in the illustrations. There are certainly a couple of ways that you could use this with a child learning his or her letters.
I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.
