An Annoying ABC by Barbara Bottner

It all starts with Adelaide who decided to annoy Bailey. Bailey in turn blamed Clyde. What did Clyde do? He cried. Do you see where this going? One child after another, in alphabetical order, in Miss Mabel's class causes the next bad behavior or annoying act. After the behavior has run its course through the class, or the alphabet as the case may be, Adelaide, who "started it" must....apologize. Of course! Very creatively written, with lots of good examples of alliteration and vocabulary, as long as it does not give any students ideas of bad behavior :)
