Alphabet Adventure: 04/15/09
Last month I reviewed the second book (Alphabet Mystery) in the alphabet series by mother and son team Audrey and Bruce Wood. The series starts with my favorite, Alphabet Adventure. It introduces the lower case letters of "Charley's Alphabet" and the world in which they live when they aren't at school with Charley.
Before they head off to school to meet Charley for the first time, their uppercase teacher letter takes them on a field trip through the city. Along the way the curious letter i has an accident and loses (or misplaces more accurately) his dot.
Observant children will notice that the little dot isn't far behind the rest of the letters who are frantically trying to find the dot so they can be a complete and proper alphabet for Charley. The unspoken detail of this extra hide and seek game on all the later pages of the book makes a cute book into a fun book.
The second thing that I love about Alphabet Adventure is the world that Bruce Wood has created for the letters. It's populated with more than just the 26 letters of Charley's alphabet. There are capital and lowercase letters of different sizes, colors and fonts going about their lives and business in a world that's reminiscent of Venice and any number of other far away places.
Sean and I both eagerly awaiting for a chance to check out the third book in the series, Alphabet Rescue.
