A is for Autumn by Robert Maass
I have said before (I think) that I really love ABC books! I saw this books, from afar, at a conference I was at Thursday and Friday. The photographs in this book are pretty amazing. And for the most part, I enjoyed the choices the author made for each letter (A is for autumn and apples; L for leaves; P for pumpkins). However some of them would probably be a stretch for younger kids.
"I is for ice cream, which is delicious in any season."
"N is for neighborhood. It's where we live."
Despite this I will probably share it with my younger students as I feel ABC books reinforce that initial letter recognition so well.
