Educational gift giving wrapped up with fun has never been so easy as with this ABC Puzzle and Book: My First Puzzle Set complied by tiger tales. This colorful set comes in a box with a handle and Velcro closures, making it easy to store and bring with you. Inside is the My First ABC Book and a corresponding puzzle in a plastic resealable bag.
I love the way this book is set up. It has a soft, glossy cover. When opened, the first page is a picture of the completed puzzle in case readers need visual assistance. Each alphabet page in the book is made up of nine squares. The middle square has a big letter and small letter in white text on a black background. There are six blocks that have photographed pictures that match the corresponding letter. In the other two blocks are questions. Example: “What color is the apple?” and “Can you snap like an alligator?” These questions are interactive, making this an even greater learning experience.
The puzzle pieces are sturdy and large enough for smaller hands to manage. One side makes all the pictures with corresponding words. The puzzle is reversible, so if made the opposite way, the child has a puzzle with all the upper and lower case versions of each letter in a white font against a green polka dotted background.
When my girls were little, these were the types of books and puzzles they loved most. Especially for the Lil’ Princess (now 9), these activities would entertain her for a long time, and she still loves doing puzzles to this day. I swear it’s because she took to solving puzzles early on that she is still engaged by them and finds them easy to put together.
This is one of my favorite products from tiger tales. Highly recommended.
