Besides the alphabet, there are eighteen short lessons, often listing a few new words and a short poem to go along with the. There are six half-page color illustrations that go along with the lessons and illustrate the short poems. Measures 10 1/2" x 7" . Covers show surface wear, particular some cracks in the illustrations. Pages are soiled and toned due to age, particularly on the top edge.
