Teaching the alphabet in the odd world that only Dr.Suess can create. I love Dr.Suess books because they really captivate children's imagination and can make a subject more interesting.

This book is so great for kids! Books like this will surely attract kids who are learning ABC and who are beginners. I am sure that the lessons the get will retain in their minds since this book is really an informative one and suits to the needs of the children. I recommend this book to all parents. ( )

A great book for kindergartners -- helps children learn the alphabet. With a 2-spread page per letter, each letter has real and imaginary creatures with names that begin with the letter. This book by Dr. Seuss helps children learn the alphabet in a fun way. ( )

This is an alphabet book that introduces each letter of the alphabet with the use of alliteration. This book can be used in early childhood settings and elementary settings to introduce and reinforce the sounds of each letter in the alphabet. What great about this book is that it constantly reiterates the letter sounds with the use of alliteration, which is also a skill that can be introduced using this book. ( )

This is a great book to help lower elementary kids learn their ABCs. Dr. Suess introduces the upper and lower case of each letter, and then gives an alliteration of things that start with each letter. The book is predictable, because it has a rhythm, and every new letter is introduced in pretty much the same way. This is a good example of an informational book, because it is giving factual information about which words start with which letters. I think students would really enjoy this book because of the rhyming, bright colors, and alliterations. I would use this with a kindergarten through second grade classroom.
