AlphaOops!: The Day Z went First

AlphaOops!: The Day Z went First“Zebra and I are SICK of this last-in-line stuff! This time we want to go first!”

Z is a bit tired of always being last and decides to take a stand, and demands that they do the alphabet in reverse .. at least that is supposed to be the plan. Seems some of the other letters have their own ideas of what order the letters should be in. The result is a hilarious comedy of letters, that will delight any child young or old.

The graphics are simple and colorful and complement the writing well. The illustrations of the letters remind me a little of the “Letter Factory” video by Leapfrog, in terms of bringing the letters to life.

My four-year old is able to appreciate the comedy of the situation. Whereas my two-year old doesn’t quite get that all the letters are mixed up, but she loves to recognize the letters and breaks into the A-B-C song every time I try to read the book.

Recommendation: Check it out from Library
