Alphabeep: A Zipping, Zooming ABC by Debora Pearson

AlphabeepZipping, zooming down the street . . . . What’s up ahead?  Come on—Beep, beep!  This clever ABC book has been around for a little while, but I think it is worth noting again.  It has huge appeal to little boys like mine who love cars and trucks and THINGS THAT GO!  The illustrations are bright and colorful and funny, and the letters of the alphabet show both familiar and unfamiliar names of vehicles AND make wonderful sounds such as ka-Boom, squish, crunch, and gr-r-r-r-rind.  What could be better for reading aloud?  Our almost 3 year old now points out Jeeps all over town (J is for Jeep) and even knows the word “Zamboni” (which by the way, his Daddy used to drive on a part-time job).  We discover something new each time we read this book and could read it again and again.  I think lots of kids would love it just as much!
