Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Eliza educates elephants. Manny mimics monkeys. Sisika sings with sparrows."

Each letter of the alphabet gets its own alliterative sentence involving a name, an activity, and an animal. This fresh approach to the ABCs is coupled with Kate Endle's charming and colorful collage art. Kate Endle is a collector of beautiful and unusual printed papers, and she uses them to compose vibrant images for children's books and original artwork--which makes her books completely unique and immediately recognizable by a growing following. Readers can also download a free MP3 song of the text performed by Caspar Babypants, who is a popular performer and recording artist in the world of children's music (as well as lead singer of the Presidents of the United States).

Review:

"There is something so irresistibly classic about an alphabet book. Simple in theory but can have a profound effect on early literacy — especially if you include unique poetry such as in Augie to Zebra. We are tired of hearing the old 'A is for Apple, B is for Ball'. Wouldn't you much rather repeat 'Kokimo Kicks with the Kangaroo' and 'Pasquale Paints with the Panda'? Of course you would, and your child will love you for it. In the Know Mom

Review:

"Alliterative activities featuring kids playing with animals, highlighted by Endle's delightful collage-work (among my favorites, the feline jug band featured in 'Josie jams with jaguars.'). And, as you may surmise from that example, besides the repeating letters, 4-through-6-year-olds will have fun finding other items in each illustration that also start with the relevant letter.
