This book does a wonderful job creating a humorous space for students to find the silliness of the characters going through the alphabet out of order. It's a great book to introduce to kids as many of them begin to be comfortable with the alphabet. Additionally, it highlights the value of going out of order and engaging with letters, writing, and reading in a fun lighthearted manner. ( )

This is a cute book, sure to get a laugh out of kids. The interrupting moose who appears throughout the pages is wonderfully illustrated and hilarious. Moose wanders through the pages, alphabetically, and gets it's feelings hurt when 'M' is for "mouse" and not "moose". In the end, the referee-narrator Zebra gives his letter 'z' to Moose so that Moose can be involved in the book.

This is a funny alphabet book in which the moose for M is on the wrong page and is a little eager for her turn. She then get really upset when the alphabet people go with mouse instead of moose, but they find a way to make it all okay in the end. Unique illustrations in which the characters come outside of the page. ( )

Moose just really wants to be included in the alphabet.

I was really entertained by this book, the illustrations and dialog were great. If I had to use this book to teach my kids a lesson it would be that even if you hurt someone's feelings you always have a chance to mend the fence. "Be the bigger person" is the message I took away from this book. ( )
