a you're adorable

Summary:
As you sing your way through the alphabet, there's an adjective to describe all the things you like about someone. At its heart, this is an alphabet book.
Educational Themes:
Aside from practicing your ABCs, it's a chance to broaden your child's horizon with positive words. They can expand their ability to describe why they like someone.
Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 8
Recommended Age To Read Together:
0 to 4
Age of child:
Read with child 2½ years old.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow it, if you know the tune to the whole song. It's a fun read once or twice.
Little Kid Reaction
S/He picked this out at the library, and would pick it up from the shelf, but we never made it more than halfway through the alphabet.
Big Kid Reaction
The illustrations are cute, but there isn't much else to the book. There are more engaging, fun A-B-C books out there. This seemed to be a great book because of its lyrical quality (and s/he loves music), but it didn't fly.
Pros:

Having the words in front of you helps you sing the song and makes learning the alphabet fun.

Cons:

If you only know part of the song's tune, you'll get stuck between some of the verses where the cadence changes.
