A To Z, by Sandra Boynton, is an amusing board book that can be read to young children and serve as a mentor text for older children. Her illustrations are typical of her style: simple, expressive, and colorful. Each letter of the alphabet names an animal with an alliterative action verb. The action verbs could serve as a good springboard for using descriptive words in older children’s writing. Boynton’s books always bring smiles as we read them. A To Z is another great example of her style!
