Review: Creature ABC – An ABC Book That Will Look Great on My Coffee Table!

Creature ABC by Andrew Zuckerman NOT a children’s ABC book people.

I don’t know Andrew Zuckerman, but I know when you take such incredible photographs they should not be wasted on a book that will suffer torn pages, grease stains, and more from the hands of curious children. Or should they?

 

CREATURE ABC is a deluxe alphabet book that features 120 pages of Andrew Zuckerman’s breathtaking wildlife photographs. These photos are up close, and personal.  You can see the elephant’s eyelashes, you get a real sense for the majestic that is The Lion, and you appreciate the strange beauty of a vulture (yes, you read that correctly).

Each page holds another beautiful photos and in a way, I’m glad it’s only an ABC book and not riddles with lots of pointless words (words pointless?!??!)

See for yourself

 

Creature ABC

And, because this is a review I’ve got some Pros and Cons.

Creature ABC Pros

AMAZING PHOTOS

Kids LOVE looking at the photos over, and over, and over so I’m guessing it will help them learn their ABCs.

Cons

It’s a bit heavy so this is not one to toss in the diaper bag to look at during dinner or a doctor’s office.

The hard-cover coffee-table book (aka: deluxe) is a bit pricey ($19.00) for an ABC book.

What do you think of Andrew Zuckerman and Creature ABC?

Take a look and you tell me if this book should be given to children, or preserved for all art-loving adults to enjoy on my coffee table.
