Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack: An Alphabetical Adventure (Farmer Brown's Barnyard Tales)
The cows on Farmer Brown's farm are typing again. Duck can't wait to show everyone their latest note. Just what are they up to this time? Duck's not telling, but if you follow the alphabet one letter at a time, you'll find out. And you'll have as much fun as the animals are going to have, and learn your letters, too!

This book is a great way for children to study their ABC's. The pages not only have the letter on them, but also one to two words beginning with that letter and an image to go along with the words. Along with teaching the alphabet the book also has a fun storyline that also teaches kids about different animals seen on a farm. The illustrations do a great job of aiding the words while not taking away, or distracting the reader from them. I would definitely have this in my classroom library, a ...more
Doreen Cronin writes Click, Clack, Quackity-Quack as an alphabetical children's book to help with learning letters and sounds. It appears that there was a story line to follow, but I never seemed to be able to pick up on it. I feel like the book was very unorganized and not w ...more

I prefer my alphabet books to actually be matched up with objects or real words, not just T- tippity – toe or N- nibbling nibbles.
The only thing I found at all entertaining about this book was the illustrations of the kittens on the page with K, L as they reminded me of my own cats with their mannerism ...more
It disappointed a little bit. I was hoping for a little better. It didn't rhyme or anything. It basically just had farm animal words for each letter. It was almost always a 2 word saying for each letter. But I was hoping for more of a rhyming story than I got. There didn't seem to be rh ...more
