REVIEW: Little Concepts: A is for Apricat by Mauro Gatti
Learn the ABCs through cute, quirky mash-ups of animals and food, from Apricat to Zebrussels Sprout!
A is for Apricat is a fun, creative way for kids to learn their ABCs. Combining photos of fresh fruits and vegetables with cute illustrations of animals, illustrator Mauro Gatti has created a whole new kind of critter! The Apricat has the round, fuzzy body of a real apricot, with the adorable whiskers and face of a kitten. And the Turkale may have the head and neck of a turkey, but its body is fresh and green.
Each page features a letter with a new fruit or vegetable creature, paired with simple text to help kids learn the letter, the animal, and the food. A food facts page at the back explains the health benefits of each featured food with playful, kid-geared language.
Promoting healthy eating and imaginative thinking, this unique, lighthearted take on a basic concept will be enjoyed by kids and parents alike.
I love the kitties so of course I wanted to check this out. After all, I have my own sweet apricat. The combinations are clever and the illustrations are fantastic. I even learned a new X word! A-
