This a good alphabet book, the rhymes are reminiscent of [b:Chicka Chicka Boom Boom|293595|Chicka Chicka Boom Boom|Bill Martin Jr.|https://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/books/1348384871s/293595.jpg|680304] and the pictures are fun and cute, full of interesting details. The last page spread in particular is a great one to study and talk about, each of the little letters goes to bed with a favorite object ... ( )

This book is a fun way to learn the alphabet for children. The illustrations are fun and the rhymes are just silly enough to make kids laugh.

This story is about each letter of the alphabet at bedtime. The story starts off with hyper and rambunctious beginning letters but by the end of it they get sleepier and sleepier. Each letter is given a face and they have human like characteristics.

It's bedtime in Alphabet Town, but none of the letters are sleepy yet. As we see each of the letters in alphabetical order, they each have their own way avoiding bedtime until we reach Y, who is yawning, and finally Z, is snoring z's.

A fun read-aloud for little ones who are learning their ABCs.

It's sleepy time in Alphabet Town. But the twenty-six little letters of the alphabet all have something they need—or want—to do before big-letter moms and dads tuck them in. Not since the classsic Chicka Chicka Boom Boom has there been such an appealing way to teach the youngest child the ABCs while providing a one-minute goodnight story. Of course, Melissa Sweet’s animated watercolor, pencil, and collage illustrations may beg for a little more time to match up all the toys with the right letters, and Judy Sierra’s rollicking rhymed story will want to be heard again and again. Okay, so maybe it’s a three-minute story!

Sleepy letters of the alphabet get ready for bed.
