Promising review: "We love this book. I bought this for a 3-year-old. This is a board book with hard pages. It comes with a dry erase marker. The book has great photos throughout. Each photo is based on a word that begins with, or includes the letter that is focused on that page. There are multiple areas to trace the letters. And there are little activities to do such as circle all of a certain letter. The book is easy to erase. We usually wipe it off with a paper towel when he is finished." —Meekelmomma
