About The Book

This interactive board book with sixty play pieces allows young readers to spell out surprises of all sorts!

There’s a dinosaur, and it’s floating in my soup.
If you look even closer, you’ll find a whole group.
Spell it D-I-N, followed by the letter O,
then S-A-U-R, and that’s how you’ll know!
Intrepid alphabet explorers will be surprised to discover some unexpected creatures in their bowls of soup! But that’s only half the fun: with sixty play pieces to fit into the appropriate slots, readers can spell out all the things that they find too, such as pigs, pirates, and of course—dinosaurs! This hilarious, hands-on tale is sure to entertain beginning readers and help them recognize familiar words.

This book contains small pieces that could be a choking hazard, and is not intended for children under age 3.
