I don't like the computer generated illustrations at all, and the story isn't that cute or that helpful in teaching the alphabet. ( )

Come join the fun and solve a simple alphabet mystery!
All the little letters from Charley's Alphabet have learned their proper order, from a to z. They're ready to go to school, but suddenly something is wrong! Little i has lost her dot, and none of the letters can find it. Can you?
Children, parents, and teachers will have a great time finding and identifying the "little" letters on every page -- and when the little letters meet up with a party of "big" letters, the entire alphabet, large and small, can be found in one exuberant scene. From games of hide-and-seek to a wealth of teaching tools, you're off on an Alphabet Adventure -- a new way of learning your a-b-c's. -- GoodReads

Very cute and informative to little kids. The pictures in the book are incredible and so bright. It will help keep the kids engaged in what they are reading. It also teaches students the alphabet. ( )

Charley's letter has learned their place in the alphabet all year long, they go to meet Charley at his school but something happens.

OH NO, little 'i' loses her dot!

The little letters and their teacher (capital 'T') look all over the island to find little i’s dot. When they couldn’t find it, they met a new friend, capital 'I', who gave them an idea. Capital 'I' told the letters to find something that could replace dot so little 'i' can have a new dot.
All of the little letters searched for a new dot for little 'i'. Little 'a' found an anchor, 's' brought a star, and 'w' grabbed a wheel. Right before little 'i' picked her new dot, her old dot reappears. SURPRISE!! The little dot was just playing a game of hide-and-go-seek with little 'i'.

The illustrator, Bruce Wood, drew the art for all 3 of the alphabet series (as listed below). Each book has something hidden inside the art. You can do a lesson for children on just the art of all 3 of these books. For this book, Alphabet Adventure, he included silly things for children to catch.
One thing is the young, little letters that belong to Charley are lower-case letters. The teacher of the letters is a Capital 'T'. When 'i' lost her dot, the dot is actually there on every single page just hidden (at the bottom of the water, hiding behind 'x', in the coconut tree). 'S' is playing on the slides. A few 'B' are walking across the bridge. 'W' is looking out the window. 'L' is doing the limbo. 'K' is flying a kite.... and so on.
I personally love this little game of "Where's little i's dot" which is kind of like "Where's Waldo" which makes the readers stop and look deeply into the art. This lets the readers catch the more details Bruce Wood added to each page. There is nothing plain, basic, or simple about the art.

Great book for children who are mastering the alphabet along with capital vs. lower case. Due to the wonderful illustrations, this book is great for kids who love a good I-Spy book. The book also teaches that T is for teacher, K-kite, L-ladder, etc. by looking closely at the illustrations.

Yes, this book has a series. Check out what happens when Charlie's letters go on more adventures.

"Alphabet Adventure" was an interesting book about the little letters of the alphabet starting school to teach students their alphabet. Though the book does not go into much thought of teaching students the alphabet, it does show the importance of the little letter "i" having its dot on top. This is important for students to know, because many students do not put the dot on i or j when they are learning to write and it confuses the reader. This would be a great book for students learning how to write their letters. ( )
