The timeless appeal of alphabet books meets the richest Scanimation book ever. ABC Animals is a romping, stomping journey from A to Z, and all the animals come alive--as many as four to a page--in the excitement of Scanimation. It's the alphabet as it's never been seen before: Watch the Alligator snap, the Bats swooping, the Camel trot. There's L for the Lion proudly prowling along, and M for the Mouse scurrying inside his wheel. And it all culminates in the largest Scanimation image yet: Z, for Zoo, where all the animals gather to play.
Why reading is important for your little ones.
Sharing stories, talking and singing every day helps your child’s development in many ways.
Reading and sharing stories can:
help your child get to know sounds, words and language, and develop early literacy skills
learn to value books and stories
spark your child’s imagination and stimulate curiosity
help develop your child’s brain, ability to focus, concentration, social skills and communication skills
help your child learn the difference between ‘real’ and ‘make-believe’
help your child understand new or frightening events, and the strong emotions that come with them
help your child learn about the world, their own culture and other cultures.
Sharing stories with your child doesn’t mean you have to read from the book.
Just by looking at books with your child and talking about them, you can be a great storyteller and a good model for using language and books. Your child will learn by watching you hold a book the right way and seeing how you move through the book by gently turning the pages.
