Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Just when you think your child has the alphabet under control, along comes this little treasure. It gives all kinds of new associations for those letters. A is for Zoo starts off the story, and it will have your child guessing how the letter is connected to the description. It is a new way to look at the alphabet and a good brain exercise. The illustrations are colorful and add to the total effect. Early readers will be able to do this on their own as the words are simple. Parents and teachers will be able to expand upon the initial connections and have children make up their own connections for the letters. 2005 (orig.1980), Clarion Books, and Ages 4 to 7.

    A must have in every preschool library

    This book is excellent for children who are already on their way to learning the alphabet and are beginning to recognize text on the page of the book. This could be as early as two years, but is usually more in the neighborhood of 3-4. Besides the obvious attention to letters and words, the book leverages repetition and excellent visual clues to explain the thinking that goes into the "story". This book also has the super value in teaching the words Why and Because which are 3-4 year old language concepts.

    Great book

    I use this book in my classroom every year. It is not only a great way to review the alphabet but to get the students to 'think outside of the box!' They always get so excited when they figure out why each animal stands for the letter.
