Every house, with kids, needs Alphabet books. We have quite a few on our shelves year round but we ventured to the library for some new reads. Some were awesome and others were not impressive. I decided to include my thoughts on all of the books we read.
What are your must haves when it comes to ABC books?
I love rhyming, great illustrations, with a mix of uncommon and common words. Most books don’t have all of my favorite qualifiers in them but that’s why I read lots and lots of books. We love the variety.
I had never heard of this book but I loved the cover so I brought it home with me. These animals are so funny and the illustrations are great. Seriously loved it. Check my Instagram for my favorite page of this book.
The librarian suggested this book to me. She read it most nights when her kids were growing up. I thought it must be amazing. Well, I disagree. It did cover all of the ABC’s but it seemed jumbled and pointless. No real story line even though it was set up that way. Goodnight Moon might be one of those books that you either love it or hate it.
Letters mixed with the concept of sharing what we have. Sometimes you have something that you don’t need. Even though you don’t need it chances are someone else will. Great concept to learn at an early age. This book is funny and cute. My littles were giggling most of the book.
These peas are adorable. As they make their way through the alphabet the peas introduce occupations.
Did I include any books that might be new to your family? What is classic to you? ABC by DR Suess or Goodnight Moon. I wonder if I am in the minority or not. I’d love to hear from you so leave me a comment.
