About a year ago we were lucky to receive a copy of Irish illustrator Jennifer Farley’s alphabet iBook Animal ABC. Now she is back with her newest iBook, the bright and cheery Fruit & Vegetables ABC.
As far as I’m concerned finding a fruit or veg for every letter of the alphabet is an impressive enough feat in itself (definitely a few towards the end of the alphabet that were new to me!) but also providing colourful illustrations, hand drawn lettering and a tap to play button to hear each letter and fruit or vegetable name goes above and beyond.
I generally prefer the app format for iPad alphabets rather than iBook however three year old Cal took to it easily and enjoyed the colourful illustrations and sounds. He had plenty of giggles along the way but particularly for the illustration of letter D, it took some work convincing him that this was a picture of a date and not some other brown item.
