A To Z, by Sandra Boynton

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!

*Which animal is your favorite?
*Can you think of some more verbs to describe each animal?
*Could you write an alphabet book in this style?
