Enhance your purchase
The Alphabet Menagerie is a truly delightful children's book that entertains with humor and clever rhyme. It's hard to create a unique, new alphabet book, but John Maling has done it all. Kids will love "critters" like Vaquita, Xiphosuran, and Quetzal-"My name is hard, twisting tongues like a pretzel." The verses are fun to read aloud, filled with interesting descriptions about origin, history and habitat. There's Moose, for example-"We live in the North, where we run around loose!" And Narwhale-"My horn is really a tooth-a tooth grown long." Both adults and children can enjoy all the witty depictions. This book will fully engage the imagination over and over-each time it's read! Jo Ann Kairys Award-winning Children's Book Author and Illustrator Sunbelievable and I Want Cake "It's really cool to be a" person, to read such a creative and informative book on animals. Through illustrations and poetry, you'll learn about familiar and non- familiar animals... a quetzal, a narwhale, an elephant or penguin. You'll never imagine your favorite animal the same way! Dr. Lynn F. Hellerstein Author, See. It. Say It. Do it! " The Alpha Menagerie really talks to the kiddos. It talked to me! Love it." Jake Frakes Author Back to Gammon John Maling presents to us once again a poetry book, The Alphabet Menagerie, that is sure to be loved and enjoyed by children of all ages. Though it was written for older elementary children to read alone, younger children could become totally immersed in this animal adventure. The beautiful verses along with the author's original drawings beg the reader's enthusiastic attention and call for each reader to light that spark of imagination that will carry them forth into this marvelous menagerie of "really cool" critters. Georgann Hall Parachuting Publishing John Maling's The Alphabet Menagerie is a great way to experience why it's cool to be an animal from A to Z! Don Sidle Cartoonist and Illustrator As a former English teacher, reading and writing is close to my heart, and the appreciation for poetry shown by John with his wit, the tempo of his words and engaging readers with familiar and new animals had me reading ... and re-reading ... finding a new treasure in the poem each time.
