What's Dr. Seuss's ABC About

Publisher Summary

Arguably the most entertaining alphabet book ever written, this classic Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss is perfect for children learning their ABCs. Featuring a fantastic cast of zany characters—from Aunt Annie’s alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, with a lazy lion licking a lollipop and an ostrich oiling an orange owl—Dr. Seuss’s ABC is a must-have for every young child’s library.

Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

Three little boys who love books about dragons, whangdoodles and magic.

Dr. Seuss’s ABC book is just as clever as you would guess. My favorite part is all of the alliterations with each letter. A child will quickly learn a letter’s sound because of it. The inventive animals associated with the alphabet keeps the little ones laughing.
