It's A! (It's the Alphabet!) – Booklist
The central conceit is clever and educational. To demonstrate a “short a,” the words track, rabbit, cat, and ant are shown alongside associated photos. Then a sentence pulls them all together. The kids. . .will have a fine time breezing through the pages with their active, colorful design combining photographs with illustration. A story, featuring lots of letter a usage, concludes, along with an activity, a glossary, and, yes, “More Words with A.”
