Availability for Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!
  1. This book can be read on up to 6 mobile devices.
A basic ABC book with rhyming. This book is very Dr. Seuss and a good first book for children to be exposed to the world of Dr. Suess. This book could be used as a theme book, a read aloud, or a link to alphabet lessons. The basic use of this book is around Dr. Seuss's birthday. I see this book everywhere, when his birthday is around. It's a classic and will be around forever.more
This is a really good and fun nook to read out loud. It has a good rhythm and some funny tongue twisting words and lines. It is awesome to help kids come up with words for each letter.more
Great book for beginner readers. This is an alphabet book that begins ,"Big A liite a", and so on... I love how after each introduction of the letter, they give words that tie in the letter in which it represents in the alphabet!more
There was a time in my life that I could recite this book by heart. When after reading each page, I would mention a part of the accompanying illustration, and a dimpled little hand would reach out and point at it. When the sounds of letters from that little person would start with “sss” for S and a recognition of “O” as the same shape as the little bits of Cheery-O’s cereal. Geisel’s imagination is on full display here, and what a wonderfully wacky way to learn the alphabet, especially compared with the more traditional books which preceded him. C’mon. “O is very useful. You use it when you say: ‘Oscar’s only ostrich oiled an orange owl today.’” How can you not love this book?more
Summary:This book is about the letters in the Alphabet. It goes Big A little a what begins with a and then lists things that start with that letter, This goes for every letter in the Alphabet.

We could use this when talking a bout rhyme. 2. This could be used when learning the Alphabet.more
I love any Dr. Seuss book, but especially this one! It is such a fun, upbeat way for children to learn their alphabet. The illustrations are strange but so creative and colorful. Like all of Dr. Seuss books this one rhymes, which makes it even more entertaining to introduce letters to children! It would be fun to have students pick a letter of the alphabet and list their favorite things that start with that letter and present it to their peers. I adore this book and will not only read it to my students in the future, but my children as well.more
Dr. Seuss's ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! is a great alphabet book for children. It is very colorful and fun, and it is filled with rhyming lines like most of Dr. Seuss's works. This would be a great book for children to read when they are beginning to learn how to read because they can focus on words that begin with certain letters. It is also a great book to help children who are learning their alphabet. It is a good choice for an alphabet book!more
Yet another great alphabet book. This book is fun and very interactive. With each letter is says "BIG __, little __, what begins with __?" It gives the students a chance to say words that they think begin with each letter. The book shares some words that start with each letter and has pictures of those things as well. It is very helpful with letter learning in that it shows it both as a capital and lower case letter and lists many words that start with each letter while giving students the chance to guess words that start with each letter as well.more
This alphabet book is filled with crazy animals and out of the box verses; it incompesses a mind of a child and is easy to grasp. This is a great book for children to learn the alphabet and sounds while having fun with all the strangeness of it.more
Each letter is represented with Dr. Seuss's quizzical nonsense words that make reading the alphabet fun for any child.more

Seuss, D. (1991). Dr. Seuss's ABC. New York: Random House. (Original work published 1963).Ages: 3 to 6 years oldMore a book of sounds that a book of words, Dr. Seuss's ABC is an alphabet book that brings imagination into play, mixing real words with made-up ones as each letter is celebrated. Each letter in printed in its capital (BIG) and lower case (little) version, followed by the question, “What begins with ___?” The answer is a sentence that uses alliteration to teach children the sound of the letter, and the repetition of the letter for reinforcement. The rhymes are full of nonsense and always very entertaining. The words from each sentence are represented in Seuss’s classic drawing style. The colors are bright, and so is the mood of the text. This is a fun book to read aloud to children, and one that kids will be eager to read by themselves. Writing an alphabet book to name creatures that only exist in Seuss’s imagination and teach children words that only exist in Seuss’s vocabulary may seem counterproductive to some, but the crazy illustrations and light-hearted rhymes are sure to capture children’s hearts—as it has done for almost 50 years.more
Dr. Seuss' alphabet book is perfect for preschool children who are learning the letters of the alphabet. With colorful illustrations and fun, out-of-the-ordinary characters, learning the alphabet easy, comical and fun!more
Summary: This book goes through the alphabet letters along with different words that begin with that letter. Response: It is a fun book to read and sing different tunes to.Theme/Connection: Alphabet letters; A great book to work with kids on their letters in the alphabet.more
This is a great way to start teaching younger kids the alphabet and differences between upper and lower case letters. I highly enjoyed this book as a young reader because of its silly rhymes and illustrations.more
The text is well done and some of the pictures are quite funny - the baby in the barber shop, for example. Regardless, I find Dr. Seuss's animals to be mostly hideous, classic or no. Not so sure yet how our girls like the book though, maybe they will be of a different opinion.more
"BIG Blittle bWhat begins with B?Barberbabybubbles and abumblebee."I love Dr. Seuss's ABC fun use of alliteration and rhymes. The book shows both upper- and lower-case and gives examples of several words that begin with the letter and shows illustrations of each word. Some examples even help teach counting and cause and effect like..."BIG Slittle sSilly Sammy Slicksipped six sodasand gotsick sick sick."Kids will love learning their ABC's with this book because they're having so much fun!more
Rarely does one book solely satisfy teaching phonemic awareness to children. Dr. Seuss's book, Dr. Seuss's ABC, not only includes one of the elements suggested to teacher phonemic awareness, but has three! Alliteration, rhyme, and the alphabet, are creatively woven together to create a one of a kind book that will have children recognizing sounds in no time!more
Dr. Seuss’s A B C: An Amazing Alphabet Book! is a fun A B C concept book filled with alliteration from A to Z. “BIG A, little a, what begins with A? Aunt Annie’s alligator. A…a…A”. This board book features both the upper and lower case letters and three words beginning with the featured letter on each page. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and better yet accurate to the melodic alliteration throughout this concept book. Most letters have their own page, however, there are some exceptions. Comparing this book to The Timbertoes A B C Alphabet Book is almost unfair. In true fashion, Dr. Seuss wins out on interesting pictures, creative sound/melodies made from the alliteration, as well as the smiles each page will bring to the young reader/listener.more
With Dr. Seuss as your guide, learning the alphabet is as easy as A, B, C.more
Much like Chris Van Allsburg's "The 'Z' was Zapped," this is a book that travels through the alphabet giving us words that start with every letter along the way. This is a great book for beginning readers. The characters in this book are very Seuss like - with the big eyes and elongated necks and disproportionate bodies. The characters are always full of life and energy which is there to make reading fun.more
I just love this book, it is an absolute blast to read aloud. My preschool students always crack up with it, but it also gets them thinking. It shows the letter, puts some hilarious combination of words together, and shows a beautifully illustrated picture to accompany. It provides a fun jumping off point for kids - ask two or three kids to come up with their own words that start with A or J and combine them in a ridiculous way the same way the book does. And, for older kids with more art skills, they can then illustrate their new situation.more
This is a book that was written to help teach children to read by placing emphasis on the letters of the alphabet. Not only does it focus on identifying certain letters, but it also focuses on using and identifying both uppercase letters and lowercase letters. It gets children to think by always asking the question "What begins with (letter)?"I think this is a very good book to read to children in Kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. A good time to read it to them is when they are learning about the alphabet and applying it to certain words. In addition, I think it is a good book to read to students who are learning about words that rhyme.more
This book is a great read for students who are learning the letters of the alphabet. Dr. Seuss goes through each letter giving several words that begin with it. It is a great way to get students thinking about other words that start with certain letters. Also, there is some repetition so students could read along with you. This would be a great book for kindergardeners and beginner readers.more
This is a great way to start teaching your kids. The alphabet, upper and lower case letters. Kids like the rhyming and the silly words that Dr. Suess is know for, these are all great words for kids.more
I love this book!! It was one of my favorites as a child.more
If you've ever played (or watched your children play) the CD game version of this, then you know that it has a lot more to look at and read about than the book, however, the book is a classic. A wonderfully fun way to learn about the ABC's. Appropriate for all ages :-)more
This is a great story in helping children learn their A B C. Just like any Dr. Seuss Book we read it hads rythem and ryhmn in it. Children will love to use this book in order to get to know the Alphabet. It really does not have a certain plot, or charecter or a setting. In extention ideas I might have the children make up their own words that relate to the alphabet. As in A - Apple, B -Bat. In this collection of words the class might make up their own book.more
"Dr. Seuss's ABC" is a unique take on the Alphabet song. The book can be read to the tune of "ABCS" and incorporates a great cast of characters. Readers will be introduced to Little Lola Lopp, Nixie Knox, and of course, Rosy Ross who owns a red rhinoceros while learning the alphabet.While many Seuss books reveal a deep, underlying truth, this book is all fun and games. The humorous tone is present throughout. The sometimes tongue twisting language will keep readers of all ages wondering, "What begins with 'A'?"In a class, I would assign a letter to each one my students and have them create their own verse. We would then perform their version in front of other classes. The students could act out their version or the original version. Each student would have a part in the production. Older children could include makeshift sets, costumes, and props.more
