The Alphabet from A to Y With Bonus Letter Z!


High quality for an alphabet book.

Silly rhymes where a lot of the words in the couplet start with the letter, or in the case of X have the letter in the middle or end of them.

Given Steve Martin's ability to write, most of them are actually really good rhymes and have good meter, which is hard to find in standard children's books. I was amused.

I like how the inner pages of the cover have letters that aren't in the English alphabet, like an O with an umlaut, and Es with accents. There might be a little bit of non-political-correctness with a dog-faced boy and hunchbacks.
