Picnic Table Talk: Alphabet

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

Welcome to week two of Picnic Table Talk!

I, the list making Katie, love alphabet books. I have been collecting them for many years. There are so many creative ways to present the letters of the alphabet and it is fun to see the variety. So, it only seemed natural for me to share a list of alphabet books from A-Z to kick off today's picnic table topic. For some letters it was very difficult to just choose one!

A– Arches to Zigzags: an Architecture ABC,by Michael J. Crosbie
B - Bugs and Beasties ABC by Cheryl Nathan
C - Creepy Crawlies from A-Z by Louisa Ainsworth
D - Dr. Seuss's ABC by Dr. Seuss
E – Eric Carle’s ABC

J - Jambo Means Hello: Swahili Alphabet Book by Muriel and Tom Feelings
K - Kenya ABCs: A Book About the People And Places of Kenya by Sarah Heiman
L - The Letters Are Lost by Lisa Campbell Ernst
M -Miss Spider's ABC by David Kirk
N - Many Nations: an alphabet of Native America by Joseph Bruchac.
O - Old Black Fly by author Jim Aylesworth
P -Pignic by Anne Miranda
Q - Q is for Duck by Mary Elting and Michael Folsom
R – R is for Rhode Island Red by Mark Allio & Mary Jane Begin
S - Shiver Me Letters: A Pirate ABC by June Sobel
T - Tomorrow's Alphabet by George Shannon

  9. Hmmm... something went wrong with Mr. Linky... Can you fix my link - it picked up one I used last week on someone else's sight!

    Here is the correct link to my book review -

    Great site by the way!

  10. I have a suggestion...when we link up should we include our child(ren)'s age in our post if appropriate...like when we include an activity/game, though it may not be needed for book lists? Just a thought. :)

  11. Sorry, I didn't do a new post mentioning ABC and 123's summer picnic, I just linked to an old alphabet post I had. I hope that's okay. I'm just not finding the time I used to have to sit at the computer nowadays!

    ReplyDelete
  12. I am looking forward to seeing everyone's great ideas. I will be starting letters with my oldest this summer. I'll be taking notes!

  13. I like the ABC list. Is nice to have a list of different ABC books to look.

    This week I'm not going to participate because I'm starting ABC letters with my girls and I don't have any pictures to post. I just use my imagination with my girls. So, until next week.

    I'm going to check the other blogs and their nice ideas.

  14. Lots of good ideas today, and now I'm going to have tons of book requests at the library.
    I just edited my post to add a Thomas the Train ABC list. ;)
