Here’s my selection for Perfect Picture Book Friday:

Counting on Letters: From A to Z and 1 to 26
Written and Illustrated by Mark Gonyea
BookPOW, 2014
Suitable for ages: 4-6
Theme/Topic: Concept, ABCs, Numbers

Opening Spread:
1 A all alone.
2 Bs balancing.

Brief Synopsis: (from Amazon) An alliterative romp through the alphabet that combines letters with numbers for a double-whammy of educational fun.

Resources: We use ABC books to practice letters at our house. Kindergarten testing has been a tough, but we practice and practice some more. There are resources at PBS Kids to practice letters. One could also encourage an art project using letters in new scenarios. Instead of “4 Ds dangling,” how might you illustrate a D.

Why I Like This Book: It’s a fun, graphic twist on an ABC book. The letters are an integral part of the art. Each page is fun. And, it’s been on repeat read at our house since Christmas 2014.
