Poppy Wise introduces us to family and friends as she tells us about all of the unusual things her dog Pete has eaten, starting with an Accordian.
It's humorous for adults and perfectly suited to the quirky imaginations of toddlers and young readers.
You can't read it too fast or you'll get your tongue tied. A toddler who knows his letters won't let you skip any, either.
Our daughter can't get enough of this book. Some of the characters move from page to page, and she likes pointing to them. Now she'll read some pages herself.
You have to read it slowly the first couple of times, as it's nearly a tongue-twister in spots. It's a fun twist on the usual alphabet book.
This is a light-hearted alphabet book.
The alliteration of the story helps reinforce the letters and their sounds. There are also some new objects (e.g., a fez) for expanding vocabulary.

Borrow. The toddler may not tire of it, but you ultimately will.
