Top of the Shelf: Z is for Moose

Z is for Moose

by Kelly Bingham and Paul O. Zelinsky (Greenwillow Books) This book is sure to delight all young alphabet-lovers and their parents, with special fun for moose-lovers: and who isn't one? I had the pleasure of watching a parent and child making their way through the expected choices of apple, ball, and cat, where the young reader found her bearings, but by D the moose jumps in, and gets called out by a zebra wearing a movie director's hat and carrying a clipboard. The elephant on the E page looks angry at the mistake. Moose keeps hoping for a turn, but when the M page finally comes, Moose is upstaged by a gleeful mouse. Chaos ensues, until the happy and clever ending.
