Z is for Moose

At first I thought this was going to be just like A is for Salad, which I love. Z is for Moose, though, is its own story, and a funny one to boot. Not your typical ABC book, Moose has character development and reconciliation.  0060799846

Without spoiling author Kelly Bingham‘s backstage drama for the alphabet show, I’ll just drop a few hints. Moose, like Limelight Larry, is a stage-hog, over-eager for his walk-on part to arrive. Zebra, the director, is trying to manage the crew and stars that jumble together in a cacophony of illustrative genius by Paul O. Zelinsky.

Z is for Moose is a brilliant book; read it for fun. Or use the comparison texts to meet those Language Arts goals.

  3. I’ve seen this book and like the sound of it, but haven’t checked it out yet. I think that I need to! I like that word cacophony too! Sounds like our chickens.
