ABCXYZ by Adrienne Barman

abcxyz_couvFunny flamingos, cute koalas, and orange orangutans are just some of the animals who bring the pages of this illustrated alphabet book to life!

ABCXYZ is not just any alphabet book! If your family enjoys learning languages you’ll love how each letter of the alphabet introduces you to animals that have the same name in different languages. For example, B is buffalo (in English), buffle (en Francais),  bufalo (in Italiano), búfalo (en Espanol) and Buffel (en Deutsch).

Adrienne Barman’s illustrations are large, striking, and full of character thanks to her quirky-eyed creatures . It’s a great follow-on from her book ‘Creaturepedia (Welcome to the Greatest Show on Earth)’ and is also full of wonderful pictures to ignite the imagination.

As well as finding this book fun to look at, we also learnt about some unusual animals such as the dromedary, jabiru , quetzal and narwhal.
