On of those books you can read over and over. Dr, Seuss creates unusual and fantastic creatures for each letter of the alphabet. Aunt Annie's Alligator A A A! ( )

I had to use this book for a lesson plan for EDUC 2200. My lesson was about syllables and phonological awareness and I pulled words from the text to teach the subject. ( )

I really enjoyed this book because I think it's a great way for English Language Learner's to practice their alphabet skills. There are so many different activities they can do with each page: recognizing what's a real word and made up word, practicing letter recognition and pronunciation, and reading skills. Children can also locate all of the "B's" on a page. The only thing that may be tricky for English Language Learners would be distinguishing what is a real English word and what isn't. Non-English Language Learners could also use this as an activity to determine what words are real and made up, since they are state-tested on that. Dr. Seuss makes every page memorable and different, yet still focuses on the concept of alphabet learning, which I loved. ( )

repetition of the letters of the alphabet meet alliteration meet colorful characters in a Bright and Early beginning book.

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.

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.
