A variety of animals parade by in this familiar jumprope alphabet song.
The antics never quite quit as a parade of animals sell their wares in this wildly illustrated version of the familiar alphabet ditty and ball-bouncing game. Young readers will delight in meeting such characters as Barbara, the bear with balloons for sale in Brazil; New York Ned, the newt who owns a noodle emporium, and finally the zipper-selling Zambian zebra and zebu, Zelda and Zach.

About the Author

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a great book. I read it to my first of 4 boys. He enjoyed it so much we wore it out. I have a total of 4 boys. I have purchased it again for my youngest. I hope he enjoys it as much as my other three sons have. They loved the pictures and all the different word for each letter.
Well the title says it all ya know. Just read the book (and look at the pictures) and have a laugh.
