Submitter: This is one of the books we have on our shelves at our public library to teach kids about the alphabet! I can’t believe it hasn’t been weeded from our collection yet. The funny and awkward poses had our library staff cracking up as we flipped through this gem. Many of the people are positioned insanely awkwardly and they are all in leotards, which adds to the awkward. I actually recommended this to a patron once on accident before I knew what it contained.
Holly: It took me a while to figure out what the shapes the humans are creating have to do with the letters being represented. I still haven’t figured out some of them. The A shape (below) looks like they are making ants out of their bodies. The D is people making up the shape of a dinosaur. O is an octopus. Okaaaaay…but what is the N and the P? The P looks like a rocking horse. “Pony,” maybe? The whole thing is a little odd.
