P Is for Pterodactyl: Worst Alphabet Book Ever
While younger ones may appreciate the humorous illustrations and whimsical text, this unique alphabet will engage a reader more. Focusing on troublesome words that defy the rules of the English language, this colorfully illustrated picture book will provide giggles and maybe a bit of eye rolling as children read clever ditties like “B is for Bdellium. We doubt anyone knows what bdellium is, but it’s the only word dumb enough to begin with a silent B.” Please note, there are references to the Ouija board, witches and psychics. The back of the book includes a glossary with a pronunciation guide that provides definitions for each word in the book. ~Deanne
Let's get real—the English language is bizarre. A might be for apple, but it's also for aisle and aeons. Why does the word "gnat" start with a G but the word "knot" doesn't start with an N? It doesn't always make sense, but don't let these rule-breaking silent letters defeat you! This whimsical, funky book from Raj Haldar (aka rapper Lushlife) turns the traditional idea of an alphabet book on its head, poking fun at the most mischievous words in the English language and demonstrating how to pronounce them. Fun and informative for word nerds of all ages!
