Z is for Moose

Can there ever be too many alphabet books? I think not and Z is for Moose, a collaboration of Kelly Bingham and Paul O. Zelinsky, is a perfect example of why there should always be new ABC texts. It is a truly fantastic addition to the crowded, but always popular, genre.
It mixes a silly to sophisticated visual humor with a memorable cast of characters, the protagonist being a Moose ever so eager to shine in his representation of the letter "M". His eagerness brings him bursting onto the scene as early as "D" and chaos ensues.
It is the perfect tale for the preschool /kindergarten audience. Those newly acquainted with the alphabet will laugh mightily at the disorder and zaniness and, speaking from experience, those decades away from their first meeting with the ABCs will snicker too.
