5.0 out of 5 stars Fun and beautiful Aug. 15 2014
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
We've had these a while now and the kids are always getting them out. The cards are sturdy and hard to bend/eat/soak with water and chew etc. So far they have all survived and the drawings of the animals are as usual beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars More flashcards, please Jan. 28 2007
By K. Davenport - Published on Amazon.com
Our 16-month old received these cards as a gift, and we LOVE them. If you are an Eric Carle fan, these are especially wonderful. They reinforce "The Very Hungry Caterpillar," "Brown Bear, Brown Bear," "Panda Bear, Panda Bear," etc. She truly has a grasp of A, B, Cs and is on the way to developing color skills. She has memorized many of the cards, like Giraffe, Narwhal and Peacock, and stardards like Duck, Hippo and Monkey. Only downside is that she asks for them constantly, when she wakes up in the morning "flash cards" is the first thing out of her mouth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sturdy and smart! Dec 19 2007
By Janice K. Wood - Published on Amazon.com
I never review products, but I had to make a special case for this one. These ABC flash cards are thicker than the pages on a board book, so my one-year-old can't be rough enough with them. With a letter on one side and pictures on the other (and a very sturdy box to hold them all), these cards have been her favorite learning tool. Better than any book, because she enjoyed taking them out of the box and trying to put them back in. And she tries to stack them like Mommy! She can tell me what a monkey says, show me the horns on a buffalo, and the tusks on a walrus. These are great ... you can't go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love Them! Oct. 1 2007
By J. Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com
My 2 year old loved these SO much, he had them memorized after the 5th time I pulled them out! Best of all, he now points out (correctly) the letters he sees all around him everyday (so, great translation from the cute and colorful cards - I had worried about whether he would correctly associate the 'colorful' letters to the 'plain' letters, in a book) -- Boy, that was painless!!! Thank you Eric Carle ~ my son just got his reading foundation, and ENJOYED it too!

This is saying alot, for my whirlwind of a son ;-) -- for instance, his preference for reading books/looking at these cards, is that we are actively moving at the SAME time!!!-- we may be both standing on our heads -- or building Lego towers -- or throwing a ball -- Because of his learning style, I feel the added interest of the colors was a help in gaining/retaining his attention. He comments on the colors, and asks if the letters are 'swimming' (some of the watercolors have a lovely 'water/wave-like' appearance!). The colors also aided in providing initial distinction between similar-in-appearance letters (capital E and B, or, Q and O --for instance). With a couple times of practice, he was able to easily distinguish the differences (without the color aid), but this was a helpful 'beginning' boost for us.

My daughter also learned the alphabet with these cards, and still loves them, because of the beautifully portrayed animals! (She, thankfully, did not learn them standing on her head - bottom in mid-air -- she learned them cuddling in bed with mommy --gee, you have to love girls! ;-) -- but my son is the best weight-loss program EVER! ;-)

ps - PLEASE do not forget to enjoy the adorable (and sometimes, exotic) animals on the back! (I will never forget when my daughter told her Grandma about a 'Quetzel bird' -- and Grandma thought she was making it up! ;-) -- my one criticism of the animals is the 'Giraffe', I wish it had been 'Gorilla' perhaps, since I like to teach that 'G' sound first . . . but this is a pretty minor complaint -- and the Giraffe is too cute anyway!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great set of flash cards Feb. 23 2012
By Karen C. Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Cards|Verified Purchase
This is a great flash card set. I use it while my daughter eats dinner, and every time we get near the high chair, she immediately points at the flash cards. I think it's nice that some of the animals aren't the 'typical' you'd think of for the letter (like, flamingo instead of frog). I've listed the cards below.

A: alligator; B: buffalo; C: caterpillar; D: duck; E: elephant; F: flamingo (even though there is a picture of a frog on the box); G: giraffe; H: hippo; I: iguana; J: jellyfish; K: kangaroo; L: lion; M: monkey; N: narwhal; O: octopus; P: peacock; Q: quetzal; R: rhinoceros; S: snake; T: turtle; U: urchins; V: vulture; W: walrus; X: xolo (xoloitzcuintli, Mexican hairless dog); Y: yak; Z: zebra.

The reasons I gave this a 4 star and not 5 star. First, X is for xolo, which I can't pronounce, and comes with an explanation. If an explanation is needed, I don't think it was a good choice. X-ray fish could have been used as an alternative. Second, the letters are in a sans serif font. So, the capital letter 'I' looks like a lower case 'L'. I think the font is fine generally, but they should have adjusted the 'I' specifically.

Those are minor complaints, overall I think this is a great set.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Carle ABC cards June 21 2007
By Tracie E. O'hara - Published on Amazon.com
Being a PreK teacher, I hate the sound of the words "flash cards" and the negative skill and drill image it conjures up. However, the beautiful images from Eric Carle's favorite stories are loved by the children and a great way to reinforce alphabet skills. My students were excited when they recognized familiar characters like the very hungry caterpiller, and the cards came during a unit when I was using Carle's stories to emphasize our unit on growing and social skills needed for kindergarten. The cards are sturdy as well, and could be used not only as a manipulative, but as a beautiful wall decoration. I highly recomend the cards!
