Not only is it an alphabet book featuring animals, but it has these luscious and amazing illustrations that you can pore over for hours. In addition, the author included a little “treasure hunt” in the book; each page has an illustration of the author for you to find. We have so much fun trying to identify all the things that start with the featured letter. For example, on the D page, not only do you see dragons, there are also dauschunds, dolphins, a drill, a drawer, a dinosaur, dynamite, a decanter, donuts, dice, dolls, drinks, daggers, a dormouse, a dragonfly, a duck, a drum, diplomas, doves, dogs, a doctor, a double-decker bus, a dictionary, darts and more. The Little One and I hunch over the page together calling out what we found. Another thing I adore is the gorgeous lettering the author uses on each page. But perhaps the best way to share with you the beauty of this book is to show you some pictures of it. (Keep in mind that I took photos of these pages with my camera, and they do not really do the illustrations justice. The colors are much more vibrant and rich in real life.)
