This is a good alphabet book with gobs of alliteration and kids with funny names, but I have to admit it's shaken my smug Canadian faith in the superiority of zed over zee. At the end there's a recap of all the letters gone by, and you read them out and turn the page on a cliffhanger, and after bee cee ee gee pee tee vee, of course Emmett yells out "ZEE!!!!" and I had to tell him it was zed and it was kind of a letdown really.

This book goes through the alphabet with some strange sounding creatures resembling each letter. This shows kids to have an imagination and how anything is possible if you put your mind to it. These creature could exist for the letters if only they would believe and imagine they were real. Imagination is key to an adventurous and young life. ( )

This ABC book is great to help children learn their ABC's in a way that only Dr Seuss can show. Excellent for pre and K grades . ( )

There is never anything bad to say about a Dr. Seuss book! As usual, this whimsical book captures any child's imagination and helps them to learn the fundamentals.

A classic book that is great for parents and teachers alike to teach children the alphabet, how to pronounce them, and examples of the letters being used in words they know. I love how simple and sketch like the illustrations are, very Dr. Seuss. Kids will be drawn to this classic artwork that comes with each letter of the alphabet. The way it is written also makes it a great read aloud book. For example, they say "A...a...a" so in order to get the full grasp of this letter you would need to pronounce it out loud and hear it rather than just in your head.

Book description
Lawson/LIB 428 Desc. - While this has classic elements of an ABC book, its greatest elements are that is 'not' a classic ABC book. Of the many strengths is that is presents the smaller letter with the larger version and in Seuss style has the rhyme, repeition, alliteration etc. But what I love is the introduction of fun words. Aside from U is for Umbrella it also has D is for Doughnut and C is for Camel rather than the usual words. This is also a board book and perfect for the infant/toddler classroom.
