5.0 out of 5 stars Story Time Again... Jan. 31 2013
By Reader Writer Runner TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This charming book extends far beyond the usual "A is for apple" alphabet book. Instead, it uses the alphabet as a foundation on which to build the sweet story of a dog attempting to get a taste of an apple pie:

E eager for it
F find a crumb of it
G get a taste for it
H have to get a lick of it
I in trouble

The stylish illustrations enhance the text and bring the dog's antics to life. A fresh and creative take on the ABCs!

4.0 out of 5 stars So much more than "A is for Apple, B is for Bear" Dec 13 2011
By E. Strickenburg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Full of charm and sweet simplicity, this is far more than just an ABC book. The alphabet is just the structural foundation: on top of it is built the delightful story of a dog attempting to get a taste of freshly baked apple pie. It's a bit like a poem:

E eager for it
F find a crumb of it
G get a taste for it
H have to get a lick of it
I in trouble

The stylish illustrations blend well with text, filling out the story of a curious dog's antics. If you're looking for a fresh and creative take on teaching the alphabet - and a sweet story to boot - this is the book for you.
5.0 out of 5 stars An ABC book that tells a story Dec 22 2013
By rachel (wildflower) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Board book
Unlike other ABC books this one tells a story. It is quite unique and playful, and the best part is X is not xylophone. In this book each letter is not a thing but an action, or a feeling. As a nanny I have never seen an ABC book like this one, and I love it. Very creative and wonderful. Thank you, thank you, thank you for giving us a different kind of ABC book.
5.0 out of 5 stars Unique ABC book April 3 2013
By ReJoyce - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I love the way this ABC book tells a story. Excellent for children's programs. Most ABC books are just vocabulary books but Apple Pie ABC actually tells a story; I love it! Plan to use it in my Toddler program at the Library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Naughty Dog! Dec 29 2012
By C. Weimer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
My 3-year old loves this book and asks us to read it quite a lot. While she doesn't appreciate the alphabet concept, she loves the story of the naughty dog pining and scheming for pie! The only part I didn't like (so I changed it when I read it) is **SPOILER COMING** . . . When the dog eats the pie and gets away with it. In my version, he gets put outside. ;) Cute book nonetheless!
