This would be a great book for a read-aloud in second grade because the students can hear the alliteration in the book out loud. The students could also say the repeated lines, such as "Big A little a" and "Big B little b" and so on, so they can be actively engaged in the story.

This a great ABC’s book with allleration pattern. I starts from Aunt Annie's Alligator and it takes you all the way to Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, this sturdy board book version of Dr. Seuss's ABC. With Dr. Seuss as your guide, learning the alphabet is as fun and as funny as the feather on a Fiffer-feffer-feff!

This a really great alphabet book! I used this book to teach a phonics lesson, working on first letter sounds. The children loved this book. It was a really fun experience for them to shout the letters and sounds with me while reading. ( )

I really liked this book because of how it makes kids repeat the new letter that they are learning multiple times. The kids see the letter r and there will be a great deal of words on the page that start with r. This makes the reader keep repeating the sound, thus embedding it in their brain. I also think the colors do a good job of keeping the kids interested in the book as well as the characters because they are fictional characters, causing the kids to guess what animal they night be. Overall this books is great because it dedicates 2 pages to every letter and does a great job at really cementing the sound into the kid's brain. The main point of this book is to get kids to constantly repeat the words that have the letter sounds at the beginning in a new fun way. ( )
