Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book!

"Dr. Seuss takes his wild imagination and fun and turns it into one of the better alphabet books for kids. Every letter includes several appropriate items. They can range from the ordinary, left leg for "L", to the humorous. My family can still tell you exactly what begins with "Q", and we haven’t reread this book in at least 15 years. Parents tired of the standard "A" is for apple, "B" if for ball book will find a breath of fresh air here, too. They’ll be laughing at some of the sentences and enjoying the meter used throughout." - Amazon Review

Dr. Seuss’s ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book! is one of the best-selling books of all time with more than 5 million copies sold.
