    Chances Are - A Fun Rhyming Alphabet Book

    Chances Are, by Sue Bangert-Wood, with illustrations by Jack Foster, is a fun rhyming alphabet book. It’s a new take on the traditional “A is for Apple” alphabet book. Chances Are gives children colorful and comical critters to expand their alphabet study in a creative, “nonsensical” way.

    The book is entertaining and enjoyable. It practically dances with silliness. Children will appreciate this rhyming read as much as teachers and parents will. Crazy questions will delight and amuse. Here’s my favorite paired example:

    Can an Iguana
    chew on gum
    then blow a
    Bubble? POP!

    Would a Jaguar
    write a ticket
    if he dressed up
    like a cop?

    The wild word rhymes are illustrated in a whimsical way by Jack Foster. He has the right amount of goofiness in these illustrations to appeal to young readers. They will hang on every humorous page and be wiggling and giggling before they finish the book.

    Chances Are gives teachers and parents plenty to talk about for children learning the alphabet and beginning readers, too. Sue Bangert-Wood has thoughtfully provided supplementary resource materials: An Alphabetizing Activity, Scrambled Words, Word Bingo, A Crossword Puzzle, A Hidden Word Puzzle, and more. These should keep kids busily engaged in lively learning activities.
