"Seemingly the typical alphabet book with large type, this volume stands out for its artwork: gorgeous animal wood sculptures created in Oaxaca. Every letter is illustrated with a full-page photograph of a colorful hand-carved animal whose name either begins with or includes that letter.

Weill displays the English and Spanish names below the image and include notes on a few of the letters, such as in the 'ch' and 'll', which are no longer part of the Spanish alphabet, and the 'rr', which is a commonly used sound yet not part of the ABC’s. Also mentioned is the 'ñ', which belongs only to the Spanish language and is used to spell vicuña (one of the few unfamiliar animals, along with wapiti).

An outstanding alphabet book, this is highly recommended for all libraries and bookstores."
