Readers will learn and laugh their way from A to Z. This is neither an alphabet book for preschoolers nor a coffee-table book.
Young and developing readers will enjoy this off-the-wall alphabet book.
None, really. It seems odd, though, that the narrative with each letter is in such small print. If this is for developing readers (third grade), there needs to be more white space and bigger fonts.
At first I wasn't sure what to do with this book. It is definitely not for preschoolers, but it isn't a "collector's item" either. The more I read, though, the more I saw an elementary-aged child (most likely boy) reading the snippets and exploring the irony of the comic-like illustrations (like "Silver Medal" flour).
This is a humorous, fact-filled tour of your ABCs.
Because this is for older children, you can talk about some of the factual information, and also explore concepts like irony and parody.
