Bob McLeod makes learning your ABCs fun by including superheroes for each letter of the alphabet! Not only does the superhero have a name that begins with a particular letter, but there are also other phrases that uses the letter that tells about each super hero -for example: check out Danger Man! He Does Daring Deeds every Day!
The illustrations in this book are fantastic! If you don’t know, Mr. McLeod has worked illustrating comics for DC and Marvel and it shows in his artwork! I think boys and girls who love comics would really love this book! Some of the words on the pages seems to be a bit hard for beginning readers, but parents and kids can read it together and the kids can get to know the sounds of the letters. There is one kind of gross superhero on the V page (I’ll let you imagine what is superpower is but his name is The Volcano and the power rhymes with comet) it didn’t bother me too much but I think some people may not like it. The illustrations are really awesome and it is kind of fun to pick out the words that begin with the letter of the alphabet being talked about!
