Shannon's Review - Alphabet Anatomy by Linda Ann Jones
Title: Alphabet Anatomy
Author: Linda Ann Jones
Genre: Childrens Book, Picture Book
Publisher: Friesen Press
Received: From Author for Review
Release Date: August 2012
With creative drawing and snazzy rhymed sentences. Each letter has a unique word match to it. While some of the words are simple other are ones rarely used and nice to see them utilized to help kids learn the meanings.
I really liked the art in Alphabet Anatomy. It was done by the author’s son which is a neat bonus I am sure for the partners and readers.
Down side that letter X is a pain to rhyme darnit. I would have preferred to still have made the word associated with it a word beginning with an X, instead of Excited, even if I couldn’t rhyme with it. I thought it might confuse a child.
Alphabet Anatomy is a very good children’s picture book with great visual and smart sentences that the kids can have fun and learn at the same time.
