Product Description

Review

:"Gabby is a colourful and animated picture book that will engage children through its bright illustrations and imaginative text. The story also functions as a creative lesson in how to spell and attach meaning to words. The text by Joyce Grant is skilfully placed on each page to complement Jan Dolby's illustrations. Throughout the book's bright images, colourful letters of the alphabet are embedded into objects appearing in Gabby's playroom. The story shows young readers how letters turn into sounds and come together to spell words...
"On each page, children will take delight in searching for letters along with Gabby. The illustrations are full of action and movement that children will enjoy following as the story is read to them or as they look at the book independently. Small details, such as a small frog hidden amidst the action on each page, will also be fun for children observing the colourful images. Two pages at the end mention the hidden frog and also contain various activities that parents or teachers can introduce to children to make the story even more meaningful and interactive."
Recommended.

A fun story about letters and the magical things they can do. I love this book as it's not didactic but, rather, it teaches kids through their sheer engagement with Gabby and her dilemma when all of the letters fall out of her book, leaving her with a cat and a bird and big trouble!
The art is engaging and textured in that way that serves to pull readers further into the book as they reach out to touch it and the 2 pages of extension activities provide fun ideas for kids to try at home or school. Terrific!

We hosted Joyce for our grades one and two classes and everyone loved the story. The auditorium was filled with laughter. It offers a lot and allows for lots of creative discussion afterwards, or during.

Daughter liked it Sept. 13 2013

My four year-old really liked this book. My mom is a librarian and former 25+ year kindergarten teacher and borrowed this book for my daughter. We ended up buying it from an outside source that peddles used books and old library copies to make it a permanent part of our home library.
