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.
