Title: ABC/Baby ABC           Publisher:  Funfax


Synopsis:  Getting from A to Z in photographs.  In "Baby ABC", there's a baby in every picture, although, of course, none is as cute as Chloe.

Readability:  Fine for parents.  No plotline, but some interesting choices for the letters.  (Our child needs to know what an iron is?  A vacuum cleaner?  Is this subliminal training for the new service economy?  On the other hand, recognizing a motorcycle and an orangutan seems like it will be very helpful ... even if the planet doesn't become a Planet of the Apes.)
Reasonably entertaining for Chloe.  Sometimes she just grooves on hearing the sound of her parent's voice.
A pretty easy book to read when Chloe is active and turning pages herself.  We know the right words for all those photos (or at least can deduce them given the proper letter ...)

Visual Appeal (i.e., how entrancing Chloe finds it while turning the pages herself with nothing read to her):
Good.  Photographs are fun.  Photographs of other babies are especially fun.

Tooth-appeal:  Slightly gnawed.  The covers are a good 1/8" further out than the pages, so the pages have remain relatively unchewed.
