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.

Kindergarten series- taxonomy about things. Each item begins with corresponding letter.

Changes were made to fit smaller pages, and set up a more consistent format, but they ruined the euphony of some of the rhymes and made it hard to read if you had the original memorized. ( )

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.
