Summary: In ABCD: An Alphabet Book of Cats and Dogs, cats and dogs have names starting with each letter of the alphabet. They each complete activities that start with the same letter of their name.

Each page of the book is dedicated to a letter of the alphabet. There is only one sentence per page. The sentence uses alliteration of the featured letter and at times some more challenging descriptive vocabulary. The illustrations were created using photographic prints of real cats and dogs and acrylic paints.
