ABC Is For Circus: Book Review

I was given the opportunity to review the children's book, ABC Is For Circus and was really excited since I absolutely loved the last AMMO book I reviewed.

About The Book:
ABC Is For Circus is published by AMMO Books and celebrates the colorful & festive world of the circus through each letter of the alphabet. Young children will enjoy memorizing letters and words like A is for Acrobats, B is for Big Top, and C is for Calliope in this imaginative chunky board book.
ABC IS FOR CIRCUS is an awesome addition to our artist-centric line of ABC books and is sure to delight an audience of children and adults alike.

My Review
In my opinion ABC Is For Circus is the perfect creative chunky board book for any child who's learning their ABC's. The book is filled with vibrant colors and artwork that jumps right out at you. My 4yr old god-daughter wouldn't put the book down for days after I gave it to her. She said her favorite part of the book was the colors & the fact that it had to do with the circus, ha ha. The illustrations really helped her associate the letter with the words, which helped her remember what letter the word began with. The book is lightweight cardboard but is really sturdy and is small enough for little hands to carry without difficulty. I would definitely recommend any parent adding this adorable ABC book to their kids' collection of books.

About the Illustrator:

Los Angeles-based illustrator Patrick Hruby grew up in a log cabin within an Idaho forest. As a young boy he dreamt of running away to join the circus and become a trapeze artist. Eventually, however, he grew up to study math and physics before attending the renowned Art Center College of Design and pursuing a career as an illustrator. His interest in the geometry of nature is central to his work. Influenced by artists and designers such as Charley Harper, Paul Rand, and Mary Blair, Hruby has gone on to develop his own stunning and modern aesthetic.

ABC Is For Circus can be purchased at Ammo Books (here) & Amazon (here).
