Summary: This book goes over each letter of the alphabet in a fun and interesting way. Each letter is used in multiple words and of course the illustrations are eye catching.

Review: For preschool age children, this book gets long. I have used it when I am identifying one or two letters. We look at the pictures and we say the many words together--in an attempt to help associate letter sound. ( )

Dr. Seuss seems to be able to teach children a life lesson by writing anything. This simple life lesson is that of the alphabet. In Dr. Seuss's ABC there are many creative characters that help bring a child's imagination to full effect. He has truly captured the fine line between fun, and learning. This book is a fun effective way for children to learn their ABC's. The illustrations of this book are very elaborate. He has given every character their own personality just by drawing them. No two characters are alike, and it is noticeable in this story. This is a great book to help children learn in the early stages of their education. ( )

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. ( )

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.
