Picture book Annie Alligator and Zeno Zebra - Arts & Crafts, Colors, and Paste

I would like to share a nice picture book with you and it's called:”From Annie Alligator to Zeno Zebra”The book is written by Nelleke Verhoeff.Publisher is: The Four WindsThis book is suitable for children from3 years. What stands out about this richly illustrated book are the animals. Not just animals, but animals with their own name. The nice thing about it is that the kind of animal you see has been named with the first letter of its species. That results in funny combinations!

Children are encouraged to learn the alphabet. The book is also interactive and allows children to participate actively. This results in nice names and you can always vary with that! The booklet teaches the letters and how to pronounce them. Playfully learnsAnnie Alligator you in this book who all her friends are.

I foundAnnie Alligator already a fun challenge to start making. I have come up with a nice color/mosaic/paste assignment for this. Take a look at the book below for an impression of this book.
