This is one of the very best alphabet books! With each letter of the alphabet, we meet a different animal and hear about a delightful, lesser-known quirk of each critter! Did you know that penguins love a big family get-together? Or that chipmunks love to stay up past their bedtime? Or that zebras would like to be first, just once? Journey through the alphabet and become privy to the adorable little secrets of each animal along the way, with absolutely adorable illustrations throughout.
