I knew from the beginning that I was going to feature this book for L. In fact, all of the copies were checked out at my library, so I actually put a hold on a story kit just for that one book! (The kit includes twelve different books, a puppet, and some craft ideas.)
This delightful book is about occupations from a to z, and who do you think has all these jobs? Why the Peas of course! But as LaVar Burton says in Reading Rainbow, “You don’t have to take my word for it,” here is an amazing book trailer made by fifth graders:
Those peas got me thinking about how characters can play an essential role in picture books, especially alphabet books. But if that tangent doesn't interest you, we'll get right to the THE GREAT ALPHABET DISASTER... (at least, we'll try to get right to it).
(Sorry, the L M N O and P pages seem to be in a rather sticky situation. To be exact, those pages are stuck together. We will keep you updated as the problem unfolds. If it unfolds.)
I write about, with, for, and around kids all day. (Well, maybe I do the dishes too. Sometimes.)
