Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Children's Literature
Another alphabet book that inspires letter play, Bernard Most's ABC T-Rex begins, "There was once a T-Rex who loved his ABC's so much, he ate them up." The dinosaur's eccentricity and passion for words seem to spring from the author's sensitivities. Most dresses this enormous reptile in child's clothing and places him in familiar situations where he gobbles alphabet letters with zest. "A was appetizing/B was even better" until finally, "X reminded him of his Xercycle, Y made him yawn and Z was for z-z-z-z..." Each illustration has several objects which begin with the focus letter-of-the-page. All of them are colorful, silly child pleasers. 2000, Harcourt Brace, Ages 4 to 8, $13.00. Reviewer: Susie Wilde

This is just a fabulous book. ABC T-Rex is fun and exciting. Each page is filled with items that match the letter of the alphabet. It is full of color too! Its enjoyable for both the parent to read and the child to listen and learn. A great book and learning tool. A must have!
