My 2 year old and 4 year old both enjoy this book.

The letters are nice and big and clear, and Sandra Boynton's classic animals romp all over them.
J. Eastberg
This is very cute, and has some great vocabulary in it.

My daughter was a year and eight months old when I first bought this book. Admittedly that's a bit early for an alphabet, but it was the illustrated adjectives that she loved from the start. Angry, Bashful, Clean, Dirty, ... Young, Zany. She was practicing facial expressions in the mirror and still imitates the cat's frown when she wants to warn us that we're crossing the line - and she's quick to giggle out of it when we recognize the imitation.
We started Boynton with a gift of Barnyard Dance (5/5) and have bought many since. A is for Angry, Snoozers, and Barnyard Dance are the most fun and stick more than any of our other books (by anybody), so far (eight months later).
Enthusiastically recommended.

The letters are big with adorable animals beginning with each letter. My daughter loves 'X is for nothing' (no animal begins with X) and 'Z is for zoo' where you get a two page recap of all the letters and animals. A great book!

I bought this for my 3 year old son and he loves it, as do my other kids, 5 and 2. The kids love the silly animals doing silly things, Sandra Boynton's trademark. There is an animal and an adjective beginning with each letter. I like that there are negative emotions sprinkled in-- ever get sick of kid's media being either all sweetness and light or all obnoxious backtalk, with no real life anywhere? My kids sit and discuss why the Anteater might be Angry (someone ate all the ants?) or why the Opossum is Outraged (the Playful Pig on the facing page is making fun of him!), which has been so interesting to listen to! This is a very cute, interesting, not ordinary alphabet book that is engaging for many ages.

This ranks right up there with the best of Boynton's childrens' books. (I don't like them all and I don't give many "5"s).
This is just such a fresh fun approach to the alphabet and it uses the best of her whimsical humor. So many alphabet books out there just use one noun for each letter but breaking from tradition she uses adjectives (gasp!) and nouns. She also doesn't use unicorn or umbrella for "U". Great for learning. Great for fun. Worth every penny.
I'm glad it became available again.

This is another fun book from Boynton. Her silly animals illustrate an array of emotions, important vocabulary for growing children who need words to express their feelings. Preschool curriculum emphasizes the need for children to learn negotiation and conflict management. A lack of vocabulary to describe feelings often thwart these goals. This book is a wonderful and fun way to learn.

The content of the book is great but the book itself quickly fell apart. Pages fell out within 2 or 3 weeks. Would be much better as a board book.

A refreshing tribute to a child's need to learn more than nouns. The illustrations are silly, just the way kids like them
