Join Fifo the bear in another adventure in Fifo Musical Animals ABC, written by Hayley Rose and illustrated by Mark Sean Wilson. In this book, children will not only learn their ABCs, but they will also learn about animals and musical instruments. For each letter, there is an animal and an instrument that begins with that letter. For example, for the letter A, it says, “Fifo plays the accordion with an aardvark.” There is also a fun picture of both Fifo and an aardvark playing accordions. So if children aren’t familiar with certain animals or instruments, the associated pictures will help them visualize what they look like.
I absolutely adored this book. And being a grown adult, I actually learned about animals and musical instruments that I had never heard of, so it will definitely teach both children and their parents something they didn’t know. I thought this was such a cute and clever way to incorporate the concepts of the alphabet, animals, and music in an engaging way that children will enjoy. Also, the illustrations are amazing. The vibrant colors and detailed images surely complement the brilliant writing perfectly. I haven’t had the pleasure of reading any other Hayley Rose books yet, but I will certainly be checking them out after reading this one. I can see Fifo Musical Animals ABC in children’s personal libraries as well as classroom libraries because this book would be such a wonderful tool for educating children both in and outside of school. It is a must-read!
