Alphablock is THE board book of all board books. Almost 3 inches thick, this one has substance. A lovely alphabet book with letter cut outs and clever imagery to boot. So beloved by my kids, that while durable, ours had endured a little wear and tear. The G in "gardener" is now a C, and the C in "cookie" is hanging on by a hodgepodge of tape. But I guess that's the tell tale sign of a book that is loved, worn around the edges because it's constantly gripped by eager little readers.
