A delightful book to read out loud with children who are just learning their ABCs.It’s sleepy time in Alphabet Town. But the twenty-six little letters of the alphabet all have something they need—or want—to do before BIG-letter moms and dads tuck them in. Not since the classic Chicka Chicka Boom Boom has there been such an appealing way to teach the youngest child the ABCs while providing a one-minute goodnight story. Of course, Melissa Sweet’s animated watercolor, pencil, and collage illustrations may beg for a little more time to match up all the toys with the right letters, and Judy Sierra’ s rollicking rhymed story will want to be heard again and again. Okay, so maybe it’s a three-minute story!
Snuggle up with this fun bedtime board book, perfect for toddlers learning their ABCs! Judy Sierra’s rollicking alphabet story features the lowercase letters of the alphabet. Like children, they have a trunkful of tricks for putting off bedtime. But ultimately their moms and dads (the capital letters) succeed in tucking them in with a good-night kiss. Melissa Sweet’s watercolor, pencil, and collage illustrations enliven these little letters with animated expressions, and Judy Sierra’s brief rhyming story begs repeat readings at bedtime.
Judy Sierra is the acclaimed author of more than forty picture books, including the award-winning Wild About Books; ZooZical; Mind Your Manners, B.B. Wolf; The Sleepy Little Alphabet; Suppose You Meet a Dinosaur; and Everyone Counts. Her writing for children… More about Judy Sierra
