I work at a public library in the kids' dept., so when I saw another alphabet book I almost passed it by, but the picture on the front of the book of an alligator eating a salad really piqued my curiosity. "A is for Salad??? What???" I said, and had to open the book to see what was going on. I didn't just look at a page or two, but had to read through the whole thing - it was just so cute and had me smiling as I figured out what each letter REALLY stands for. Great to get kids thinking while having fun, each picture depicts an animal beginning with the featured letter engaged in some activity. For example, an alligator is eating a salad. There are a few animals, such as the iguana and narwhal, which have helpful clues as to the animals' identities hidden in the pictures. Kids may need help to identify the jellyfish and vulture, though.

This book is for all the adults who secretly watch Sesame Street and read Shel Silverstein. More clearly for kids and less cynical than Uncle Shelby's ABZ's but just as funny. The illustrations are great, giving the animals wonderful personality. I laugh every time I see this book.

A is for Salad, by Mike Lester, is a wonderful book! My children (ages 7 and 5) love the humor, and so do I. It's a fun break from the plethora of alphabet books on the market. We laugh at the irony. We are buying this book to share with my older daughter's class - I think it will fast become a favorite.

When I read this book to my grandson,he immediately got the joke. Whenever I am down, I pick up this book and laugh myself back into a good mood. The illustrations are hilarious especially the moose in cowboy boots. This is a real change from ordinary alphabet books- because the joke is on the reader. Someone observant sees its the animals doing the actions that are the real word that corresponds with the letter. I just bought this for my grandson because he kept asking me to get it for him.
