    One thought on “Talk to Me About the Alphabet”

    1. I like how this one sounds out the letters. I wish it was more consistent though, not all letters are and it was off to a great start.

    2. I didn't like it. It's obviously about the alphabet, but there's no rhyme or reason to the story. And the illustrations are kind of creepy.

    3. Talk to Me About the Alphabet by Chris Raschka is a zany, quirky rhyming conversation about the alphabet. A man on a scooter, who may be European, is featured along with his cat.Raschka's illustrations are unique and range from energetic to restful, as the man talks about every letter of the alphabet. My favorite images include letters!, attitude, Lion, Ow!, Time to get up and the last two pictures. Two French phrases and one German phrase are used. Raschka's energy, playful style and off-beat v [...]

    4. Not your average alphabet story. A conversation is going on between the main character and the reader in which both are sharing their enthusiasm for the alphabet.This was just eh for me, maybe I'm wrecked for life after Shout, Shout It Out by Fleming which includes the alphabet and sooooo much more (I love it!)Ink and watercolor illustrations. PreK-2.

    5. Before "Daisy had a ball," Raschka gave us this alphabet book. What fun! An older seemingly-German man for his message upon departure at the end, his scooter, and a frisky cat romp through a conversation regarding the alphabet rendered in playful verse. Raschka's style is evident here and this alphabet book should be part of any collection.

    6. I don't think younger readers will get the off-beat (or is it edgy?) whimsey of this book. Playful, not taking itself seriously, and clever blending of dialog, illustrations and our favorite twenty-six letters.

    7. (ABC Book) I feel like this is book is about a crazy hobo, his cat, and his scooter. I didn't like the illustration style, and the text didn't really follow a consistent pattern. I'm not really sure what this ABC book was supposed to be about.

    8. A funky, spunky look at the alphabet. Great opportunities for expressive reading out loud, and the illustrations are really fun.
