This is a pure delight – an intelligent, engaging collection of 26 alphabet riddles for children who already know the letters of the alphabet per se. The listener (or beginning reader) is given the first and last letter of a familiar word and then provided with a quartet of felicitously rhymed clues. They virtually guarantee a correct guess as to what the word is. The book’s pleasing layout and semi-abstract graphics in cheery colors are a decided plus. This work would make a first-rate classroom or home learning game. At book’s end, the child is encouraged to make up his own word riddles, and adults as well as children will be inspired to join in the fun. It’s perfect entertainment for a long auto trip!
