Read full description of the books Alligator Alphabet:This nonfiction book has 26 pages for each letter of the alphabet. It goes through the alphabet naming animals that begin with each letter. I especially like how the author uses names of animals that start with U and X. Most books won't show animals that start with these letters because they can't think of any. Instead, most books will use take the letter U and use the word ugly and then show something like a warthog or toadfish. Or for the letter X, they will use the words extra big to describe a huge animal.
Uu is for umbrella bird.
Xx is for xoona moth.
Plus I like how the author ignores a lot of the "popular" animals and uses animals that most people don't think about. For example: For the letter E, the book shows a picture of an emu even though most books would show an elephant. I is for iguana and impala--an impala is an antelope that lives in Africa. In this way, the author helps build a child's vocabulary by using lesser-known animals.
Ss is for SLOTH. Again, this is another example of how the author uses a unique animal. (Most books would have simply used snake for the letter "s".)
I would use this book to help build my children's vocabulary skills when learning about animals. We could use a dictionary or an encyclopedia to discover animals that haven't learned about.
