We did have an animal themed one but it wasn't an A-Z, just spell out your favourite animal. I like the bird 'twist' :)

Sam | 396 comments WTG, Caroline. I need to learn to pick shorter words. I'm currently working on hammerhead shark.


message 42: by Connie N. (new)

Connie N. | 3197 comments But when you're done with the longer word(s), it'll be a great sense of accomplishment, Sam!


message 43: by [deleted user] (new)

Look at it this way Sam, when we get towards the end and you're racing through all the short words, I'll still be plodding along on hammerhead shark (well, not that one in particular because it's not on my list but you know what I mean!)
