The Alphabet Book by Reg Down
Whether or not your child already knows his ABCs, this charming book from author Reg Down is as fun as it is educational, and helps children discover the alphabet in a new and creative light!
The Alphabet: How Pine Cone and Pepper Pot (with the help of Tiptoes Lightly and Farmer John) learned Tom Nutcracker and June Berry their letters features several familiar characters from other Reg Down books, such as The Tales of Tiptoes Lightly and Big Stamp Two Toes the Barefoot Giant.
Tom Nutcracker is soon to go to school as summer comes to an end. But deep in the forest on his father’s farm, the two gnomes Pine Cone and Pepper Pot are worried. What if his teachers do not teach Tom his letters properly? Tom might spell Pine Cone as NEPI NOEC, or Pepper Pot as PREPREP TOP. What if he accidentally spells the famous Tiptoes Lightly as TOESPIT THIGLLY? That would be a disaster!
So the two gnomes, with the help of Tiptoes Lightly and Farmer John, decide to teach Tom his letters themselves. Tom’s little sister, June Berry, insists on learning too, and neither they nor anyone else who reads this magical tale will ever forget their ABC’s (or their LMNOP’s or QRST’s either)!
Full of stories, songs, pictures and plays of bold and silly adventures, this delightfully clever book is recommended for children in kindergarten through third grade.
