really imaginative alphabet book.

This is a fun very basic alphabet book for young children. It goes through the list by using two words that start with the appropriate letter and pairing them up in a silly way. These include "cupcake canyon," "ice-cream island," and "octopus overall" among many others. The pairings are funny and exciting; you never know what will come next. The words are very simple but they are accompanied by great illustrations that make children laugh. They are very colorful and look a little childlike. It is definitely a fun way to learn the alphabet!

This book goes through the alphabet introducing very silly and unusual combinations of objects along the way. This includes Apple Autos, Cupcake Canyon, Ice-Cream Island, and Octopus overalls. The vibrant illustrations were done in bright acrylics and the illustrations live up to the silly titles. This is a great book to introduce the alphabet and make it extra fun. Children would easily remember this super silly combinations. A great find.

This is an alphabet counting book with a somewhat different choice of words for the examples. Instead of A is for Apple, A is for Apple Autos with a picture of people driving around in apples. Very cute and my son liked it.

Our daughter loved this book to pieces... literally. This book single handedly kept her occupied on a plane trip. She only just turned two, and we are getting our second copy today. I love this book for its unique view of the world (personal favorites include dog dance, elephant elevator, goldfish grandstand, vegetable volcano...) and it's beautiful illustrations. Any parent who has ever read the same book a hundred times to their child(ren) knows the joy of finding a book that can appeal to adults as well as toddlers.
