ABCs and 123s for Boys by Tom McLaughlin

Rating: 5 out of 5.

What I Loved:

The illustrations in this book were so bright and colorful! It’s a stunning collection of images that will keep children engaged through each page! My daughter and son were both delighted to call out the letters and numbers as we moved through the book!

How I Felt:

ABCs and 123s for Boys is a collection of lovely illustrations that correlate to a letter or number. My kids really enjoyed the scenes for each one. The names for the animals are all boy names, but that should not be a reason to restrict this to one gender. I would really like to stress that this book is completely perfect for boys and girls, so don’t be deterred by the title.

To Read or Not To Read:

I would recommend ABCs and 123s for Boys to boys and girls up to early elementary school! It’s a great way to reinforce counting and letters for young children!
