Alphabet Wildlife A to Z by Nata Romeo was such a neat book to review with my kids. They both enjoy the book but for different reasons. My preschool son enjoys just reading books and reinforcing the letters he has already learned and learning what animals start with each letter. He is beginning to figure out sound recognition of letters and this was very helpful in that because all the animals featured are not what you would expect for each letter.
My daughter really enjoyed looking at the drawings of each animals and the different techniques that were used in the creation of the intricate artwork. She has seen some of the artwork of the older kids hanging up at school and they use many different techniques, some of which are in this book and has been in awe of them. Now she can sit and stare at the pictures and figure out just how to make start drawing like this herself.
Here are a couple examples of pictures in the book so you can get an idea of how much detail was drawn in and just how long these pictures had been worked on.
My husband and I even had fun with the book too, as we turned it in to a guessing game. Since typically you might expect "S" to be snake, it wasn't always easy to guess what the animals was. What I did was go though page by page and had him guess what it could be and then would show him the pictures and tell him if he was correct or not. He got about 50% off them right. This should give you kind of an idea for the variety of animals used and is excellent exposure for kids to learn about new animals.
