Picture Book Saturday

 
 
 
About the Book: Moose really wants to be in the alphabet book. Zebra has a plan and has the alphabet organized but Moose has other ideas.
 
GreenBeanTeenQueen Says: How have I not shared my love of Z is for Moose? And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this book! It rivals Robot, Zombie, Frankenstein as my most favorite and adored picture book of the year.
 
This is one of those picture books that just never seems to get old. It's a blast to read aloud, especially if you really act out Moose's part-his excitement is infectious and you can't help but give a dramatic reading as Moose when you read this one. And the illustrations are fantastic. They really add to the humor of the story and it's fun to spot Moose on the pages. You read this book and try not to laugh-it's just that great. Seriously, I've read this book numerous times this year and I find something new I love with every reading.
 
Z is for Moose a must read for any picture book lover and a welcome addition to any library collection.
