Book: Augie to Zebra (An Alphabet Book!)
Age Range: 3 through 6
Description: The title of the third book from wife-and-husband team of Kate Endle and Chris Ballew pretty much says it all. Alliterative activities featuring kids playing with animals, highlighted by Endle's delightful collage-work (among my favorites, the feline jug band featured in "Josie jams with jaguars."). And, as you may surmise from that example, besides the repeating letters, 4-through-6-year-olds will have fun finding other items in each illustration that also start with the relevant letter. The accompanying free mp3 for the book (available here) is nice, but tied as it is to the non-story (but literal) text, isn't particularly exciting. In any case, fans of the previous two books from the duo will likely be pleased with this new entry.
