Cool Stuff, Stumbled Upon

It’s nice to trip over something like this in a really obscure Google Alert about some search results done on a health website. Apparently, did a Top 100 Children’s Books of All Time. AlphaOops didn’t make Top 10 on their ABC book listing (DARN YOU, CHICKA CHICKA BOOM BOOM!), but it did make the Honorable Mention. I’m cool with that.

AlphaOops!: The Day Z Went First: If you have a kid who enjoys thinking outside the box then this title is sure to please! Illustrator Bob Kolar joins forces with author Alethea Kontis for a group of twenty six of the most unruly letters any alphabet has ever seen. Picture a classroom of disobedient and belligerent kids (complete with repeated requests for bathroom breaks, second turns and more) and you have a pretty good idea of what you are in store for with this wonderful book. A sure fire hit with anyone whose name has them commonly delegated to the end of any list, this time the end of the alphabet demands first position!
