I didn't like the way book was engineered. It is impossible to shuffle pages without tearing them. My baby had 3 pages apart in first 5 minutes. She is very smart kid (18 months), knows her ABC and 123 etc. but while turning pages, it was not intuitive at all. I do not blame her.

HASH(0xa6e28030) out of 5 stars book engineering fails July 30 2008
By Jeanene Headlee - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I love Eric Carle and his art and this book doesn't disappoint in that respect.
The problem I have with this book is its major design flaw. You see the A page, but to see the next two pages (B and C) you must lift the entire A page up (the fold is at the top of the book). You can imagine that when you refold the page, it doesn't lay flat against the page unless you hold it down at the center binding. If you don't press it down when you turn the page, you bend the page! It's impossible to not bend the page when you are reading to an animated 15 month old... grrr. Also, having pages that are L-shaped (when unfolded they are a large backward L shape) make them VERY easy to tear. And I do mean EASY. My toddler loves to walk around with his books and this one is truly trashed. I think it has 2 or three pages remaining. But since it is his current-reigning favorite book, I have had to buy replacements that only I can hold while I read to him.
His very favorite parts of the book are the front and back pages. The front has the uppercase alphabet and the back has the lowercase alphabet and when he points at it I have to sing the ABC song. Repeatedly. :-)
A minor irritation is Carle's choice of creatures: quetzal, narwhal, xolo (how do you pronounce these words?!?), and unicorn (the only mythical creature). Aagh.

HASH(0xa6e2827c) out of 5 stars Not easy to read Aug. 11 2008
By S. Turlington - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I love Eric Carle's illustrations, and every child should have an ABC primer in his library, but this book is hard to read with a baby on your lap. The pages fold up and out, and aren't easy to hold for the baby to get a good look. As a result, I don't bring it out very often.

HASH(0xa6e284bc) out of 5 stars Another wonderful Eric Carle book March 21 2009

I have yet to read a book of Eric Carle's that I didn't love. My two year old loves his books. They are so easy to read and the illustrations are very eye catching. My two year old can practically read this book on his own.

HASH(0xa6e28660) out of 5 stars like it , but not durable Feb. 4 2014

I bought this one for my 14 month old son. My son love these pictures. The L shaped flip model encourages his curiosity and at the same time it will be easy to torn apart... So it is not a durable one.... :)

Perfect for my three year old class. We shared this book with the younger three year old class and the four year old class. Everyone loves it!
