I like this book for a couple reasons. I like how Oleson was able to keep a forward moving, story style feel, and yet keep the main focus on the alphabet. This is good for young readers, A lot of phonics and grammar style activities can become very mundane if they aren't provided with entertaining help. This book provides that. While going through the alphabet and different words, the story still gives an entertaining effect that you are on this plane adventure with Donald. I also like the amount of examples that he provides with each word and their letters. For each letter he provides about 5-7 different words that start with the letter of the page, and each one is simple. These words could easily be used on a word wall or a white board phonics lesson to connect to the story. These examples are very good for young readers in giving repeated examples of one sound and the same words to help shape there phonemic awareness. While the setting of this story is a plane adventure with Donald,the main idea of this story is the alphabet. Overall I like this book, having a recourse that can provide a fun way for children to study letters is always good to have. ( )
