Animalia by Graeme Base
Oh, this book, this book, this book. I love it so much! I grew up flipping through the beautifully illustrated pages, trying to figure out what each object was in relation to the letter of the alphabet it appeared with. Animalia is a great book for any age. With young pre-readers, they stay captivated throughout by the pictures and the relatively short sentences. Old children will have fun doing what I did, trying to figure out all the hidden words carefully included on each page. It’s easy to see that the Green Gorillas are “G” words, but can you guess that the stone figure in the corner is a Gargoyle? I highly recommend this for any story time, or any time at all.
