Title: Eating the Alphabet (author- Lois, Ehlert)New York:The Trumpet Club Date: 1989

Genre:Books for the very young, ABC Book

Summary:The books starts off with a rhyme encouraging readers to read through the alphabet. Each page displays a letter with fruits and vegetables that start with the letter. The words are written in all capital and all lowercase letters for each picture.

Critique:This book uses colorful pictures to draw attention. The use of all capital and lowercase letters help readers see the difference in the letters.

Activity: (After reading) Readers will trace up to 5 letters and color a picture that corresponds with each letter.
