REVIEW: The Eyeball Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta
Best-selling author Jerry Pallotta takes a peek at eyes from across the animal kingdom in this hilarious and fact-packed alphabet book.
The eyes have it! Laugh as you learn by staring right into the eyes of familiar animals (A is for alligator eye) and not-so-familiar ones (Z is for zebu eye!). Readers of all ages will be entertained with every page turn. Language learning bonus: each page defines an idiom that includes the word “eye”!
This is certainly unique among the alphabet books I’ve read so far. Animals, yes lots of animals, but animal eyes! Each letter is illustrated with drawings of an animal whose name starts with it. Plus there are “eye” idioms to go along with each letter. This would be great for a budding scientist or just anyone interested in a wide variety of animals from bay scallops to indri and lobsters to pythons. There’s even an animal for “X” that I’d never heard of before. B
What a fascinating concept for a book, my son would have loved this when he was younger!
@Wendy Williams: I love that writers are putting out books like this that can appeal to a wide range of children.
This does sound fascinating, Jayne. Thanks for bringing it to my attention.
