Back to school with 9 Alphabet Books
It's time to brush off your ABC's and get ready to learn with your kids as they head back to school. It doesn't really matter how old you get, a good Alphabet book can always be enjoyed.
The very first alphabet book I remember reading was The Z was Zapped by Chris Van Allsburg. If you haven't read this one, you need to run to your library right now and check out a copy. Then of course there is everyone's favorite, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin Jr.
Why are alphabet books so pleasing? I believe it pulls out our inner child. We return to the basics, but alphabet books take the basic concept of our ABC's and then entertain us. And isn't that what we want from all stories - to be entertained?
Here's a list of some of our favorite Alphabet books. I'd love to hear what your favorite alphabet book is.
