Barnes & Noble Staff
This boisterous rhyming alphabet book begs to be sung aloud. An old black fly buzzes around and gets into everything, from an Apple pie to mama's Yarn, until--splat!--this fly will Zzz no more! Stephen Gammell's messy illustrations swirl all over the page, just like a pesky fly.

This was NOT the BIG BOOK EDITION as described. Keeping it because I can't be bothered to ship it back to the seller. I won't be buying from again.

This book is a great chance for children to experience repetition and rhyming. This little fly helps to teach children their alphabet in new and fun ways! It allows students to see how words flow in a sequence. It also uses the alphabet which enables children to see the order at which a letter comes in the alphabet.

I purchased this book to help alleviate a fear that my 3 year old daughter has of flies. She enjoyed this book and although she still has a little fear of flies, it is not nearly as bad as it had been. She will sit with me while I read the book to her and even touch the flies in the book. As it was difficult for me to find pre-school books relating specifically to flies, I would recommend this book to other parents. The story is enjoyable, easy to read.

I use thew book in my elementary music class and we sing the refrain to the tune of "Buffalo Gals" and add Orff instruments throughout the story. The kids love the story and the fact that it uses all the letters of the alphabet. And they love that the fly gets swatted at the end.

I have a 6 month old daughter. Often I go to the library to take out books. This helps me decide which ones will be good to purchase. She really likes this book and I have a tough time reading it without laughing. I would highly recommend it.
