I am so excited you are back for Day 4 of the 365 Days of Children’s Books series!
Today’s book is one that I have memorized from reading it so many times. It was a staple in our diaper bag for many, many years. Then it moved to my purse, and now it has a home on my now toddler’s bookshelf where we read it nightly.
Suffice it say that our copy is very well loved!
Dr. Seuss’ ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! holds a very special place in my heart. It was one of the first books that my oldest son asked me to read over and over (and over!) again.
We all have at least one of those, don’t we? 🙂

Dr. Seuss’ ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!
Author: Dr. Seuss
Dr. Seuss’ ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! is a fun, sing-songy book that reinforces each letter sound in the alphabet.
Each letter contains a rhyme, with a perfect illustration to accompany it.
what begins with V?
Verna Vera Vin
and her violet violin.
If you have older children reading along, it’s the perfect time to introduce the concept of alliteration!
Also, with this type of predictable rhyming text, it’s a helpful activity to let your toddler or preschooler fill in the end of the rhyme if they are able.
For example, in the “V” example above, my 2 year old can fill in ‘violin’ if I stop before I get to that word. Being able to rhyme is a necessary pre-reading skill, and this is a wonderful book to help encourage that.
