AlphaOops!: The Day Z Went First by Althea Kontis and Bob Kolar

In this zany tale two big things happen: the alphabet gets all out of order and kids get their ABCs down pat! At the alphabet talent show, Z protests the unfair ordering of the letters. But, when they try to appease Z and go in backwards order, chaos follows. Your child will delight in watching the hilarious antics of these bright, googley-eyed letters, and won’t even know she’s learning her alphabet and practicing early phonics skills while she’s at it.
