Have you poked a dot lately? This alphabet board book has it all: educational content, look and find matching, and most important, interactive fun.
Each page features clear dots that can be poked. Pushing the dot flips the plastic into a dome depression. Then once you turn the page, the top of the dot points up, and kids can poke it down again for almost endless fun. Each letter has an animal that starts with the same letter seeking an item, also starting with that letter of the alphabet. For instance, Victor the vulture looks for a violin.
It provides excellent practice for alphabet sounds both audio and visual forms. The last few pages give a review of the entire alphabet without any distraction, with extra dots below each letter, just in case your child didn’t get enough poking on the previous pages.
Our book has been through at least five kids and almost all the dots still work. A couple will immediately pop back once kids poke them, but that seems reasonable given the amount of use we’ve gotten out of them. All three of my kids enjoy poking at this book.
