(Note from your reviewer: I usually avoid giving ratings to reviews of books I couldn't get through, but this thing is so genuinely bad and racially insensitive that I feel like I HAVE to warn people away from it.)Ladies and gentlemen, there are a great number of old Newbery Honor books that have faded into obscurity. Some of them are actually pretty good, too! The Winged Girl of Knossos has a pretty big following among the five people who've read it, for one, and I rather enjoyed The Secret Riv [...]
"Little Appleby, blessed with an odd name and many relatives, longs to find a Zebra butterfly for his Cousin Clement's 99th birthday. What follows is a kind of sequential alphabet novel, first envisioned by Anne Parrish and her brother as children. Many pictures full and in text with the letter names cleverly worked in."
Such a delightful and interesting children's book published in 1950. The book serves to give practice in learning the alphabet as each chapter has a letter of the alphabet as the focus letter for vocabulary in that chapter. It is not a picture or board book. It was not scored by Accelerated Reader, however, it is a wonderful introduction into expanding a student's vocabulary-with just the proper touch of whimsey! For a couple of hours, I was transported back to my elementary classroom and the sw [...]
I think this would be better as a cartoon short than a book, provided they cleaned it up a little bit.The book is basically about a kid who gets lost on one of his relative's 99th birthday.

It's just too much.And the people in the book are all quite stupid, but ESPECIALLY the Native Americans. So yes, the book is definitely a rac [...]
So I occasionally think that being too politically correct is ridiculous, but this book could use a whole lot of p.c.-ness and still not be p.c. The story's Native Americans have every possible stereotype as well as IQs in the double digits. Actually, everyone in the story has IQs in the double digits, so that's not super bad, I suppose.A chapter book-length alphabet book is a novel (haha) idea, but unlike some alphabet books, this is not the sort I would want to reread. The illustrations are cl [...]
Read one of her other books rather than this one. Odd.
My high rating is more for the artwork than the text.
