Matthew A.B.C.

Matthew A.B.C. Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Mrs. Tuttle has her hands full with a class of twenty-five boys — and to make matters worse, they're all named Matthew! Could there be room for one more Matthew? Mrs. Tuttle thinks so...and she doesn't even have trouble figuring out which boy is which. The new Matthew fits right in with the others as readers discover that each Matthew is unique in his own special, alphabetical way.

Review:

"What's a teacher to do when all of the students in her class have the same first name? In this offbeat alphabet book, Mrs. Tuttle has found what she believes is an easy solution. Mrs. T. distinguishes the 25 Matthews in her kindergarten by associating the first letter of each boy's last name with one of his attributes. For example, 'Matthew A. is affectionate' and 'Matthew G. has trouble with glue.' By the penultimate page, readers have met the entire class, save for the new kid: a boy named Matthew (of course) who takes his place in the line-up right after Matthew Y. and is sporting lots of zippers. Following a fairly standard ABC-book template, each page is devoted to a letter that's featured in an upperhand corner. Throughout, Catalanotto (Emily's Art) makes a departure from his customary, portrait-flavored style and employs more playful lines and shapes in buoyantly hued watercolors. The artist's often wacky depictions of what makes each Matthew special (Matthew F. has a cat on his face; Matthew R. has freckles in the shape of a rhinoceros) offer kids plenty of laughs and, perhaps, new ways to look at their own classmates. Ages 4-6." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Miss Tuttle's class has 25 kids--all named Matthew. So she invents little nicknames based on each boy's quirk to tell them apart. Full color.
