Clang, clang clang- the heroic little alphabets have rolled into town on their red fire truck! What is not there to like in this fun book? It has got brightly coloured and happy pictures, it has firetrucks, it has an adventure of rescuing the alphabet factory, it has rhymes, and 3-letter words worked in clever ways into the text (I won’t give it away, you will need to see it for yourself).
On top of that, it also has some important life lessons that any kid can identify with: that goals can be achieved by working within a team and to not underestimate the ability of others even though they may be different than you. The little letters of the alphabets are fun, resourceful & oh-so- spunky! They really came to life & my son and I loved the Charley’s little letters!
I found out that there are other alphabet books written by the Wood duo, Audrey & Bruce: Alphabet Adventure and Alphabet Mystery. We can’t wait to read them and add to our growing collection of reviews of fun alphabet books, like the Dinosaur ABC.
