Children love the bright colors and charming illustrations in this book. Cleo-cat-tra’s ABCs takes a child through the alphabet filled with animals which are whimsically engaged in child-friendly activities from A to Z. There is even an animal with a name that starts with the letter X! Young children enjoy following the main character, Cleo-cat-tra, as they learn the alphabet. They discover the upper- and lower-case letters on each page and the repeating color pattern of the alphabet letters. They will also delight in finding Mario the mouse throughout the book as well as other activities at the back of the book.
