Alphaoops! The Day Z Went First
Z is tired of always having to go last when the alphabet family lines up. Z takes charge of the letters and starts to rearrange them, but it gets messy when they don't all cooperate. Along the way, there is a lot of vocabulary such as R is for raindrops & rainbow, D is for dragon & damsel in distress and G is for green garden & great gorilla, in that order which is wonky and fun! Z gets frustrated and can't find the A, which came last. It's cute. The letters all ask, "Can we go back to normal now?" It's a funny book to read aloud with children who know alphabetical order and can appreciate the silliness. The illustrations are bright and fun and the letter characters have a lot of personality. 9.5" x 10.5" 40pp, sc. ~ Sara
It's chaos! It's pandemonium! And it's definitely not as easy as A-B-C! Filled with visually humorous details, Bob Kolar's colorful illustrations are the perfect foil for Alethea Kontis's snappy story about the comic confusion that comes when the letters of the alphabet, like a class of unruly children, step out of order and show that each one has a mind of its own.
