This book was a recap for me and some classmates as it was our childhood favorite as well. Definitely a great catchy book to read to your students within the preschool-1st grade level.

A great alphabet book with a great beat to it. The rhythm, antics and repetitive refrain draws in the reader. A cute first introduction to upper and lower case letters.
