abc is for circus (chunky)

Summary:
Bright colors, and large silhouettes celebrate the circus experience as you "walk" through the alphabet.
Educational Themes:
This is primarily an alphabet book, but it would make a great primer if you're helping a child get ready for his/her first circus experience. The illustration style, with lots of shapes, also add the opportunity for finding different shapes in the world around us. You can explore colors, object identification, and even patterns.

Big Kid Reaction
The bright colors and simple illustrations (read: not overly busy) grabbed me right away. I love the use of silhouettes to enhance the main object. You'll find all of the traditional circus elements, but not necessarily where you expect (C is NOT for clown). I also liked that most of the words/objects had two syllables, which will help expand a young listener's vocabulary.
Pros:

Bright colors and lots of shapes add to this alphabet book set at the surface.

Cons:

None.
