In the Lexington Park Library in southern Maryland , alphabet books and Winnie-the Pooh books are two perennial high demand items from customers three feet and under. I was delighted to find Don Ferguson's Disney's Winnie-the-Pooh's A to Zzzz , which admirably fills both needs in one handy volume. The book jacket states that Ferguson "has been putting words in the mouths of Disney characters since 1976." He does a superb job here supplying words for Winnie-the Pooh, Rabbit, Eeyore, Piglet, Tigger and friends. Each page features a large capital letter of the alphabet, and a four line rhyme that captures the gentle, humorous essence of A.A. Milne's original Winnie-the Pooh characters. The verses are brought to life on each page by the vividly colorful illustrations of Bill Langley and Diana Wakeman. These bright pictures depict Winnie-the Pooh and pals enjoying each other's company in homey activities in the Hundred-Acre Wood, through all seasons of the year. We join in all kinds of fun including a birthday party, a walk through the snowy woods, some kite flying, and, of course, a hunt for honey! So, treat yourself and your toddlers to some alphabet fun. "C is for Carrots, D is for door," with Disney's Winnie-the-Pooh's A to Zzzz, they're sure to want more!
This book is so much fun to read, I'm not sure who enjoys it more, me or my 20 month old daughter. It's a great bedtime book! Not only has my daughter thoroughly enjoyed the content, but she is already able to recognise letters and all the Pooh characters. I highly recommend this book for it's easy, fun reading. The little rhyme associated with each letter of the alphabet is absolutely adorable!!!
