About this title


This extraordinary alphabet book offers numerous rewards--poems that are by turns thoughtful and lively; crisp photographs that seem both familiar and new; and a fresh design to ensure repeated readings. Each poem and photograph describes ordinary things in language and images playfully accessible to preschoolers. Full color.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2?Updike's brief poems describe common everyday animals and objects from A-Z in language that is lively, succinct, and fun: "A dog/is jumpier;/its fur/is clumpier;/its tail/is thumpier;/but rarely/(compared to a cat)/is it grumpier." The appealing full-color photos range from sharply focused closeups to reflections and sweeping action shots of adorable animals and photogenic children. Each page has a different colored background, and the layout is varied and creative. The "Y" page, for "you," features kids of various ages and ethnic backgrounds playing, napping, and posing. This is not a memorable collection of poetry, but it's an entertaining selection that can be used as a concept book.?Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo and Erie County Public Library, NY
