It is an alphabet book. There are 2 words on each page. A lot of the pages use describing words. This is a very culturally diverse book. The pictures in the book are very kid friendly. younger children might have a problem with some of the words in the book.

Young students would love this alphabet book-there are so many colorful, fun illustrations to feast one's eyes on and each page reinforces emerging alphabet skills. A great addition to any elementary teacher's bookshelf.

Each letter of the alphabet is represented by an unusual combination of objects, such as "fork fence," "octopus overalls," and "umbrella underwear."

This book presents the alphabet in an unusual way by ceating odd images like Kite Kazoos and Letter Ladders. The kids got a kick out of how silly the images were and it ws very entertaining to read.
