Twenty-six letters; 26 animal friends! From Armadillo, with its long sticky tongue, to chimps that greet each other with kisses, to the slow-swimming manatee and plant-munching zebra, this delightful board book from the American Museum of Natural History introduces children to both the alphabet and some of the most interesting creatures displayed in the museum's galleries. Featuring extra-large letters, fun facts, and bright, eye-catching photos on every page, ABC Animals will enchant and teach preschoolers.

Editorial Reviews

"This sturdy, oversized offering presents large, brightly colored capital letters accompanied by a photograph of an animal whose name begins with each letter and a factoid about that animal . . . the animal images are visually striking . . . the one- to two-sentence facts provided about each animal are generally kid-friendly and interesting. Best for animal-obsessed preschoolers who . . .  are ready to progress to nudibranches, quetzals and X-ray tetra fish. Oh my." —Kirkus Reviews

“This large board book pairs each letter of the alphabet with an animal. The layout is clean, with bright colors that highlight the crisp and detailed photos. Favorite animals are represented (a chimpanzee hangs upside down from a 'C') as are less familiar ones ('H' is for a bird called hoopoe.) Each page also includes a simple, one sentence fact about each animal ('If an iguana's tail breaks off, it will just grow another one.') This animal alphabet book deserves a spot on most shelves.” —School Library Journal
