5.0 out of 5 stars Not just another alphabet book! 19 Jun 2000
By "winifredfroglette" - Published on Amazon.com
As a kindergarten teacher I am always on the lookout for alphabet books that portray letters and sounds in a different way than I read just the day before, while keeping to the same concepts. We really enjoyed the illustrations here. Several of my students noticed that this illustrator drew the ducks in the book we used on our first day of school because the pictures are simple, clear, and not too ornate. We enjoyed this work, and heartily recommend you stop by to have lunch or dinner with these folks while learning the a, b, c's.

5.0 out of 5 stars A FUN Feast ! 30 Nov 2006
By History_of_Art_Geek - Published on Amazon.com
Alligator Arrived with Apples: A Potluck Alphabet Feast is an endearing story. It is so cute; it begs to be read repeatedly. The illustrations are adorable, and they remind me of a cross between Sandra Boynton's crazy characters, and Richards Scarry's Busytown animals. Technically speaking, the illustrations are very basic with simple washes of color, but the personalities of the animals are so droll the pictures are irresistible.

I wasn't sure how my son would react to this book. He's in Kindergarten, thus, he's outgrown alphabet books, but he adored this Thanksgiving tale. Many of the food items are new to his young eyes, and he was curious about each one. The copyright page is a two-page spread that features all the menu items. The food is in alphabetic order, and labeled accordingly. I think we discussed this page four separate times. We also poured over the picture where the tables are set, and the place cards are aligned in front of the each place setting. My son wanted to address each animal, and was distraught when he discovered there wasn't an animal for the letter "R". He kept telling me that the Pigs should have invited a rabbit. What could I do but agree with him?

Parents will like reading this short, 40-page tale because it's clever, and amusing. The vegetarians will be pleased as well, because all the food choices are vegan. The book doesn't offer an age recommendation, but I think 3 to 6 years is probably appropriate. This is an unexpected holiday delight.
5.0 out of 5 stars Alligator to Zebra and everything in between attend this full fledged alphabet Thanksgiving feast! 22 Nov 2013
By Bonnie - Published on Amazon.com
We shared this book with all of our readers at Mom's LIfesavers. It is the perfect book for introducing kids to the food and festivities (and families) that share in the Thanksgiving feast! Every animal you can imagine from A to Z comes to share food at the feast - yes, even the Unicorn is there! For my full review go to [...]

I loved this with my class and they love the pictures . great for 1st and 2nd graders.The length is a little too long for preschoolers but you can always do just the letters that your children's name start with.
