Review

"The ABC's never sounded so good.  Forget A is for Apple. Try 'A is for Aretha!'  From Aretha to Zeppelin, your mini musicians will be singing your praises for taking them on this fun, alphabetical journey -- rock star style!"  Parade Magazine (8/25/2011)


"The Rock and Roll Alphabet is a fun read for kids or the perpetual teenagers who still wear Led Zeppelin T-shirts on the weekend....Buy this book if you love rock and roll."  Greencastle Banner Graphic (9/1/2011)

"The Rock and Roll Alphabet is great for edgy parents tucking in their toddlers....Just be sure to turn the stereo down before they go night-night."   Miami Herald (9/5/2011)

"A joy to behold...parents are liable to get as big a kick out of this easy-to-read bedtime book as their kids."  The Grand Rapids Press (10/16/11)

"The Rock & Roll Alphabet is perfect for the kid (and parents) who's a little bit rock 'n' roll. Sing the whole way through the ABC's....It's the two-in-one alphabet and music lesson every kid needs."  Parenting.com Holiday Gift Guide 2011

Great gift for my grandchildren and an interactive way for me to teach them about the music of my generation while they learn the alphabet.

My brother bought this for my toddler as a gift and he LOVES it. Every page, as we read it to him, he points and says 'guitar' 'drum' etc. And now he says 'Beatles!' since he doesn't yet even know his colors, this is a pretty cool word to know. :) my husband and I enjoy the book, which reads effortlessly, and our son enjoys the pictures and lilting rhythm.

This is a great book to introduce children to rock & roll icons and is enjoyable for musicians young and old. The photos are great and the rhymes for each letter are very cute and clever. My son is only three but I imagine as he gets older, the images and poems will be an entry into learning more about the history of rock & roll and "the greats". I have given this book as a gift too as parents appreciate it not being the typical ABC book.

Short and sweet. Great undiscovered images from the most iconic artists in our history. I'm a huge music and music history buff so this was a nice add-on to the collection.

With any alphabet book you know you're only getting 26 entries, but I guess I had hoped for a collage at each letter, perhaps an iconic shot and then several lesser photos in snap shot style format. It's a fun little coffee table conversation starter, but I couldn't help feel that the writer and publisher could have elevated this to something greater.
