Z is for Moose
 by Kelley Bingham, illustrated by Paul O. Zelinksy (Greenwillow, 2012) is a creative alphabet book. Zebra is directing an alphabet of friends (including Apple and Ball and others) in a alphabet pageant, and Moose is really excited for his turn. The problem is that when it comes to the letter M, Zebra forgets Moose, and goes with Mouse. The full-color illustrations are appropriately playful and Moose’s dramatic response to the situation is something kids relate to. The friendship-filled ending was highly satisfying. Z is for Moose is a delightful alphabet book for primary-aged kids. 

Kid thoughts (age 5): “It’s silly! I liked it.”
