Below are sample pages from inside the 'a' book (The Adventures of Abby Alligator). As you can see, there's A LOT of words that start with the letter 'a'.
Sometimes this type of format makes for awkward stories that don't even seem to make sense, but we think THIS series doesn't have that problem. The authors did a great job of filling their books with alliteration AND maintaining a fun and interesting plot.
This series comes in two formats:
AlphaTales boxed set
if you'd prefer 26 individual books rather than one giant one (we do!).

Big book with all the stories.
This may be convenient, but with one story for every letter of the alphabet, this is a super large book --472 pages. We find it's weight and bulkiness makes it hard to use as a classroom read-aloud, but maybe we are just weaklings :).
