From alligators all around to zippity zound, from entertaining elephants to throwing tantrums, the antics of these alligators have made reciting the alphabet fun for over fifty years!
Now in a larger, 5 x 7 trim size, Alligators All Around will continue to make children giggle while learning their ABCs.
This beloved classic from Maurice Sendak has helped introduce the alphabet to generations of children. This edition is perfect for lap sharing and as a baby shower gift.
We all know Maurice Sendak from his famous book Where the Wild Things Are. This book is a fun take on the Alphabet. It is pretty clever to see what the alligators are doing from letter A to Z. Fun illustrations, not quite like Wild Things, but still fun. It shows new words to reinforce beginning sounds and what word might start with each letter.

He also received a 1996 National Medal of Arts in recognition of his contribution of arts in America. He illustrated over 80 books. He died May 8, 2012.
