E-Mergency! by Tom Lichtenheld and Ezra Fields-Meyer (Chronicle Books, 2011) plays with letters by giving each letter a personality. When the letter E is hurt, the letters rally together to help him heal by convincing the world to stop using the letter E. The result is very amusing, and the twist at the end is a nice reminder to all readers just how often we use the letter E and take it for granted.

As in Wumbers, which we read a few months ago and which substitutes numbers for phonograms in words, E-Mergency! is difficult to read aloud due to abnormal spellings. But you have to admit that a balloon that says “Got Woll Soon” instead of “Get Well Soon” is much more fun! Raisin and I enjoyed reading this book. Since he is a budding reader, he enjoyed finding the E’s on the pages and laughing at the silly letter comments.
