This mazes and join-the-dots book is one of a pair of activity books produced for the Canadian market, the other being {Spider-Sense Spider-Man: Mazes and Connect the Dots}}.

Both are glossy staple-bound soft-cover, 8.2" x 10.9". Both feature 16 grey-scale printed pages, plus one sheet of stickers

Story Details

Within this book, the top half of each page is "practice writing letters". For each letter of the alphabet, there's a place to put the sticker which corresponds to that letter. Then there's a place for you to practice writing your letters, first trace and then copy in upper-case and lower-case.

The bottom half of each page features a puzzle or other exercise. Join-the-dots, odd-one-out, find-the-match, find a path through the maze, spot-the-differences, and all the usual stuff you find in these activity books.

General Comments

With only 16 pages, this book does feel a bit light-weight. But inside there is some nice variety of content, and everything is done attractively and well.

Overall Rating

The last "ABC" book I reviewed as the hilariously terrible Spider-Man ABC Sticker Activity Book (China), and the contrast between these two is huge. Both are "ABC" books, both are relatively slim in page count. But in terms of quality, there's no comparison.

This "Learning My Alphabet" book is simple and effective. I'm happy to give it a solid three-and-a-half web rating.
