A is for Apple. B is for a Fun Book

I love alphabet books. However, I am a bit picky about my alphabet books. They just can’t be your basic A is for Apple. B is for Beatles. While they get the job done, there is little else to them. But I need not fear for I have found some amazing alphabet books on the shelves of the Northshire. While, yes, you learn your ABC’s, you can experience so much more!

Smart Kids Animals A-Z by Roger Priddy is one such book. It caught my eye because of the smiling, inviting kola bear on the cover. It kept my attention because of the great quality all around: detailed information, fantastically bright photographs, even how it is made (nice sturdy cover and pages). (READ MORE)
