"An Annoying ABC" follows a humorous plot that includes annoying behaviors for each letter of the alphabet, and a name that corresponds with each action according to the letter of the alphabet. The story concludes with resolution and apologies for each annoying behavior.

I have mixed feelings about this book. It did teach about the alphabet which I enjoyed but it was kind of annoying to read. It felt like one big run on sentence so reading it aloud was hard. It would be a good book to test a child's knowledge of letters and letter sounds. ( )

I wasn't a big fan of this book. While it did tell the ABC's it also used a lot of adjectives that kids learning the alphabet wouldn't understand. If the teacher reading the story uses lots of voices and really expresses the idea, then it may work. The illustrations are great though! It tells a story and that's nice too. ( )

30 months - An ok alphabet book but I think Ms. Bindergarten Get's Ready For Kindergarten does this type of Alphabetical kids names better in a more engaging story. However, the author has successfully incorporated many large words for vocabulary building although I'm not completely sure kids will pick up on their meaning. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0375867082, Hardcover)

Imagine a preschool classroom with 25 cranky kids and one beleaguered teacher.

It only takes one small annoying act from Adelaide to set off a chain reaction of bad behavior. Dexter is drooling, Flora is fuming, Jasper is jeering, Kirby is kicking . . . and before you know it, Stella is stumbling, Todd is tumbling, and Winthrop is weeping. Oh, oh, oh!

What will it take to turn this annoying day around? Readers will be amazed and amused to see what happens when Adelaide . . . apologizes.

Barbara Bottner and Michael Emberley follow up their bestselling Miss Brooks Loves Books! (and I Don't) with this outrageously funny alphabet book that shows that kindness can be contagious, too.
