I say only Dr. Seuss and Living Books could make the alphabet so unpredictably entertaining. I do like the fact that it contains more than 400 alphabetically inspired surprises hidden within 26 pages that shows children learning words and letters which can be fun and silly at the same time!

My 4 year old son just loves this CD and he also has "Green eggs and Ham," which I also recommend. This quintessential Seuss book defiantly teaches the alphabet through a series of nonsense rhymes and hilarious illustrations.

Young siblings can learn to recognize both capitals and lowercase letters. Sound effects and talking characters truly add depth and humor to the basic alphabet, and Seuss's version of the "ABC" song will become a permanent sing-along favorite. This CD is one of my son favorites. I tell you this boy can seat in front of that computer for a long time. If you're able to get your hands on this item you won't regret it. Highly recommend.

From Aunt Annie's Alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, this 26-screen alphabet book lets children click on words, phrases or pictures to see them come to life. Each page contains a wealth of animations- about 15 to 30 skits per letter. On the letter Z page, for example, children can count the number of Zs in the name of Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz or watch the letter Z zoom around the screen, zapping things. A cute pet named Zed makes an appearance, and clicking on "What starts with Z?" shows a zipper, zebra, or zucchini. By the end of the page, children really get the idea that this is the place for Zs! Scattered among the pages are 14 original songs which, along with the wide variety of animated routines, result in a perfect setting for children to begin making letter/sound associations. Testers liked the playful characters- the large talking alligator and mice humming in the moonlight- and parents were impressed by the original jazz and range of vocal styles. A few design quirks lower the program's rating. For instance, a teacher using the program in her classroom wrote "There were no specific spots for children to click on so it took a while for the children to get the hang of it." This finding was confirmed by our home testers, whose initial enthusiasm for the program faded rather quickly. The design would benefit from an easier way to flip through the pages and a more responsive interface. Despite these minor problems, the wide range of routines, musical styles and clever ...
