From apple to zipper, this colorful photographic book and puzzle set is an excellent introduction to the alphabet for toddlers. Each spread highlights different letters and includes bright photographs and labels to reinforce them. Related questions help to further engage children in the learning process. The double-sided, 30-piece puzzle supports the development of problem-solving skills and hand-eye coordination.

I love the way this book is set up. It has a soft, glossy cover. When opened, the first page is a picture of the completed puzzle in case readers need visual assistance. Each alphabet page in the book is made up of nine squares. The middle square has a big letter and small letter in white text on a black background. There are six blocks that have photographed pictures that match the corresponding letter. In the other two blocks are questions. Example: "What color is the apple?" and "Can you snap like an alligator?" These questions are interactive, making this an even greater learning experience.

The puzzle pieces are sturdy and large enough for smaller hands to manage. One side makes all the pictures with corresponding words. The puzzle is reversible, so if made the opposite way, the child has a puzzle with all the upper and lower case versions of each letter in a white font against a green polka dotted background.

This is one of my favorite products from tiger tales. Highly recommended.
