B is an awfully boastful bloke and when he and the rest of the alphabet get together, he can't help but tease the vowels about their small numbers. So the vowels begin to take off, one by one. The consonants--and the rest of the farm--see just how important vowels really are. With disaster looming and B seeing the error of his ways, can U save the day and set the alphabet right again?

What a cleverly written book about the importance of vowels and with such a fun story line. I know kids will have tons of fun saying all of the animal sounds in this book (sounds with missing vowels). Highly recommend this book!

This cute, funny, and clever read-aloud just begs for re-reads! Kids will be so entertained, they won't even realize they're practicing their letters. The rhymes are fun and engaging and the art is kid-relatable and funny. Loved it!! This one's a winner for both the home library and a classroom.

Can U Save the Day is a delightful, rhyming way to teach kids not only the alphabet but also spelling, animal sounds and more. The hilarious utterances created when reading aloud, as the vowels boycott, one-by-one, promote giggles all around. An adorable children's book with important life lessons for people of all ages. Congratulations to Shannon Stocker for creating a real winner.

When bullying B insults A and all other vowels, the vowels leave, one by one. All except U, and when a runaway tractor endangers the remaining consonants, can U save the day? This book has it all: humor, rhyming, a chance to discuss bullying and respect, and educational opportunities around consonants and vowels. Lots of fun for U and your young readers!

A funny, rhyming romp, author Shannon Stocker shows kids (and barnyard animals) just how important vowels are to the alphabet. Tom Disbury’s whimsical illustrations enhance the hilarity. This book is sure to elicit giggles on every page and is perfect for kids learning how to read.

I absolutely love this book. It's so fun to read aloud. Kids have a blast hearing the animals speech go berserk! Shannon is a master rhymer. Clever, deliciously funny and the illustrations are a perfect fit! Everything about it is great, and the ending is pretty genius too!

This book is a delightful book that demands to be read aloud over and over again. The meter and rhyme is perfect--nothing is forced or contrived. Themes of bullying, friendship, and forgiveness are beautifully woven into an alphabet book; it's unlike anything else on the shelves. It's also perfect for either the classroom or home. Illustrations are simple and playful, complimenting the manuscript perfectly. If you only get one book this season, get this one!

A fresh and funny take on a “letters” book that illustrates the importance of vowels. When the vowels decide to leave, the consonants can’t make any words! Things go from annoying to dangerous until U decides to save the day. This book is so clever and fun! A must have for schools!

The idea of one group being better than another or some friends being more important is something children are faced with all the time. This clever book shows the importance of all being together while at the same time teaching how vowels work in words. Shannon Stocker makes you giggle and smile with this story. One that children and adults alike will love.

A very cute book that would be fun for any young reader. Stocker provides not just a cute story, but a lesson on cooperation and diversity that can benefit any child or schoolroom. Highly recommended.

When the letter B starts boasting that the consonants are better because there are more of them than the vowels, the vowels start leaving, one by one. And one by one the cow can't moo, the duck can't quack, and the rooster can't cock-a-doodle-doo. I love this book because it is funny – funny – funny…and kids love funny books! There are so many lessons under the humor…respecting and valuing each other and getting along. And the illustrations are fabulous. This is a great book for school shelves and home libraries!

If ever there was a picture book to teach children about the relationship between vowels and consonants, it is this one. Shannon, through her deliberate and delightful rhyme and rhythm shares the relationship of our letters in a humorous way. In addition, her creative word play teaches us about acceptance of one another, and how our differences can unite, not divide us. A beautiful and timely message for out society today.
