Pick of the Week: The Sleepy Little Alphabet

Alphabet books abound, but this new title from Judy Sierra and Melissa Sweet is worth checking out. Judy Sierra (author of Counting Crocodiles and Preschool to the Rescue among other titles) works magic with rhyme as she tells the story of a little alphabet that won't go to bed. Each letter has a no-bedtime excuse. I is busy jumping on the bed..."m is mopey, n is naughty. Oops!  o and p upset the potty". But eventually, as we reach the end of the alphabet, the little ones are in fact growing very sleepy. The parents in this animated alphabet are represented by upper case letters, and the little ones are rendered in lower case. This is a fun take on a perennially favorite preschool topic!
