Get ready to jump rope with jaguars and sip lemonade with llamas.

Introducing a delightful animal-themed ABC book that will have toddlers and parents grinning from A to Z. In addition to helping with letter recognition, Llamas With Lemonade introduces toddlers to uppercase and lowercase letters, and to alliteration. The adorable parade of animals and their often-unusual objects helps little ones build their vocabulary. The book’s oversized, case-bound board book format and irresistibly cute animals in soft pastel colors make it a perfect addition to any nursery library.

(synopsis from Goodreads)

I think this is one of the best alphabet books I've ever read! The illustrations are absolutely adorable, the selection of animals is creative, and Q and X are surprisingly well done (they're always iffy letters in alphabet books).

I don't even think I could pick just a few favourites out of the twenty-six animals presented here. They're all so cute.

This is definitely a book to check out if you're looking for alphabet books for toddlers. And I want to see what else this illustrator has done!

Thank you to NetGalley and Annick Press for providing a digital ARC.
