"An African Alphabet has much more to teach than just the ABCs. It takes the child on an African safari of sorts, bringing animals alive in the text and illustrations, especially animals that are new or unfamiliar to the child/reader...Learning about animals in this vibrant and delightful book will take readers on an adventure to Africa from the comfort of their chair!...A delightful book for children of all ages, and maybe some adults too!"
CM Magazine - January 9, 2017
"An African Alphabet is at once a typical introductory alphabet board book, and, at the same time, it is nontraditional...it is unlikely that young viewers...will have had personal experience with any (or many) of the 26 birds and mammals within its pages...A true highlight of the book are the illustrations rendered by Sue Todd who has chosen linoleum carving as her illustration medium...An African Alphabet is an excellent alphabet book and merits both home purchase and acquisition by libraries serving its intended young audience."
