Cleo's Alphabet

Summary:

Cleo is a cat. On each page, a letter is paired with an object that starts with the same letter. There is also a short sentence about the object. Cleo or a person interact with the object.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Colorful pages and cute characters will attract young children. This is an interesting book for initial letter recognition.

Content Awareness Factors:

Although this is a great book for reading to young children, I would avoid sharing it with beginning readers.


Little Kid Reaction

My son liked the cute cat and pointed out the familiar objects. We read this together, but he also picked it up to flip through the pages on his own.

Parent Reaction

I liked the book, but then I didn't. The pictures in this book are vibrant and clear. I like any alphabet book, but we both lost interest in Cleo by the end. I didn't like the fact that the text doesn't explicitly name the object. For example, "A is crunchy and red," but there is no "apple. "

Type of Book:
This sturdy board book takes your child on an ABC learning adventure with Cleo the cat.
Educational Themes:

This is a book to help kids with letter recognition and sounds. It also helps with textural descriptions of objects so that kids engage other senses and can build their sensory vocabulary (e.g., crunchy, cold, sweet, red).

Reading Level:
0.0
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
4 to 6
Recommended Age To Read Together:
0 to 4
Age of child:
Read with 2-year-old boy.
Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. Only because board books, when well loved, wear out. This is not the greatest literature, but the colors attract young minds and they will like handling a book that's just the right size for them.
