Format: Hardcover
The alphabetical poetry of Howard Schrager is nicely showcased by the illustrations of Bruce Bischof in L M N O P and All the Letters A to Z, an engaging and original alphabet book for beginning readers. Each letter of the alphabet is featured with a warm color illustration and a unique, catchy, alliterate poem perfect for reading aloud. Some suggested means for using L M N O P and All the Letters A to Z for teaching young people are presented in a thoughtful forward. "B is in bowl, bag, basket, and bin,/All manner of places/To keep berries in./A brawny brown bear/Called Big Belly/Beholds a bee buzzing;/Oh our busy B." Highly recommended for school and community library ABC book collections for beginning readers.

I bought this to help with my daughter's formal introduction to the Alphabet, in anticipation of her starting a fairly structured and typical Kindergarten. I am so glad I did. The poems are a beautiful way to help children become acquainted with letters in a way that gives immediate meaning, rather than being just the abstract forms we recognize them to be. Her favorite was the "L" poem, but she quickly learned all of them, and I know it was nice for her to be able to draw on this memory when the letters were then introduced in school. It is a nice antidote to the typical trace-and-memorize books for learning letters. The illustrations are calm, warm, and lovely.

We bought this for a 4-1/2 year old who is very interested in the letters of the alphabet. On the left side of the book there is a poem for the letter and on the right side there is an illustration which contains the letter within the artwork. For example, the letter "B" contains a poem with a big bellied bear followed by an illustration of the bear surrounded by the letter B. The poems are fun to read and the illustrations are nicely done. At the end of the book is 4-page section with Teaching Tools for the adult teaching the alphabet. This section contains suggestions on how to use the book to help children learn the alphabet and read. I found the Teaching Tool ideas valuable, so we will be incorporating them as we learn the alphabet. I recommend this book, especially if you are looking into alternative ways to introduce the alphabet to the child(ren) in your life.

I adore books, I really do. Beautifully written and illustrated books will steal my heart every time.
This book falls right in to that category. There is a little poem and a full page illustration on each page. My favorite books have a little whimsical flair to them and this one is no exception. It is read again and again here and I think it has helped with letter recognition.

I ordered this book because I was excited about the idea of alphabet poetry. I agreed that most children, at some point, think "LMNOP" is a Big name for one or two letters. I thought there would be poems about ideas like that as well as individual letters. It arrived today. My first impression was that it was much thinner than I had anticipated. As I flipped through it I noticed many of the illustrations seemed "new age". I also saw immediately that the poems were short and were not about the alphabet but were just one poem per letter of the alphabet. The poems are simple rhyming jingles containing many words of the letter of that particular poem. The content of the poems and the art are indeed very new age inspired. The book is dedicated to Rudolf Steiner and is firmly based on the Waldrof principles, style and content. The art is the fuzzy, water color style for which Waldrof is known.
If it were less expensive then I would say, cute book for rhymes on each letter if you like that kind of content and style of art.
Talk of fairies, elves, Zeus, ghost and goblins, harvest time, magic, etc. Vague, fuzzy, blurry art. Lots of medieval themes which my son would enjoy but all the rest makes it too different from our beliefs.
It is hard back book and of high quality materials. However, too many other alphabet books out there with little rhymes for each letter to pay this much for this book unless one is a Waldrof teacher or parent.
I have now read Phonics through Poetry also sold on amazon. This is what I was looking for in the first place. it has 3 fun poems for each vowel sound, 2 for each consonant and 2 for many blends.

I love this book it's so imaginative. There is also wall cards and a music cd that can be purchased to go along with this. Plus Mr.Schrager's coming out with a manual of how to teach the alphabet with stories that match the illustrations. I wish it was out already so I could use it. But as is, it's a lovely alphabet book with simple alliteration verses. Highly recommend!

I enjoy the art of Waldorf book and this book, while not spectacular in its artwork, is lovely. I bought it to teach my son the alphabet but the text is too advanced for him to receive the full benefit of it until he reads. I am sure we'll get more use out of it in a year or two. It highlights all the varying sounds of each letter and uses them in the middle and ends of words as well as the beginning. The text is fairly sophisticated, with puns dependent on reading and a challenging vocabulary (like "quagmire").
