The antics in this book will keep children entertained for hours. It is suitable for children aged 4 to 7 years old. The antics in Richard Scarry's "ABC Word Book" begin with Mother Cat causing confusion on her way to the airport and continue with Curly Pig crashing into a cak, jugglers juggling jars of jam and dizzy izzy Lizard zigzagging. There's enough wacky action to entertain children for hours and unlike many "ABC" books, this one highlights featured letters wherever they appear in a word, not just in the beginning.
