grandma's bookshelf - Backseat A-B-See!

Summer is upon us so if you are looking for some books to add to your grandchild's Summer reading list, consider this book which is not only fun to read, but will help him or her learn their A-B-C's! There is no shortage of A-B-C books, but this new one from Maria van Lieshout is one which any child who rides in a car, van, truck or bus is sure to enjoy!

Backseat A-B-See 
By - Maria van Lieshout
Publisher - Chronicle Kids
Ages - 3+

Favorite Features -
  • love the note from the author at the beginning of the book with a little history of road signs - very interesting!
  • fun "drive" through road signs from A to Z!
  • very cute ending . . . little child in the "car" falls asleep . . . as so many children do when riding in the car!
  • encourages letter recognition and road sign identification
What a fun book! Creative and interesting, this is a great book to use with children - particularly boys who love all things related to cars and driving - to help them learn to identify their A-B-C's! Enjoy the book together and then take a drive with your grandchildren and see how many of the road signs you are able to identify!
