The Alphabets and Friends

The Alphabets and Friends - Robert Fallon This book is charmingly drawn, and the concept is very cute. The initial series of little poems for each letter is a bit hit or miss. I thought it was nicely done to tie them all in as members of a family, and that many of them were very clever, but some of them flowed a little poorly.

The other poems (the Friends portion of the book) didn't seem connected to the alphabet family, so I viewed them as separate little books.
The roof poem introduces children to the structural elements of a roof, but I personally couldn't sync up with the flow of the lines.
The teddy bear playing make-believe I enjoyed more, but I think the alphabet portion of the first section stands alone, and that these additions add additional pages but don't really work together.
