Board Books A to Z - A

I'm starting a series on the board books that my son loves to read. Today I'll start with our board books starting with the letter A. How fun!

First, "Abby Mallard: Fine Feathered Friend," part of Disney's Chicken Little series. I believe there are four books in this series, but we've only found three. Another great find, "Animal Alphabet From Ape to Zebra" by Sesame Street. This is a cute alphabet book featuring Elmo and the other characters from the show. Then, "A Pilot Flies Her Plane," a Read and Sing Along book. We found this one at the thrift store complete with the CD with 12 bonus songs! My son loves this book.

Second set of books are two little Disney books, "Alphabet" and "Animals." I found these little board books (along with two more in the series) in the Target dollar section. As you can see from the Alphabet book, we started the baby on them a little too soon, and he started eating the corners. Great books!

Last, "A to Z" by Sandra Boynton. I love her books! Then of course, "Dr. Seuss's ABC - An Amazing Alphabet Book!" Dr. Seuss is awesome! Lastly is one of my very very favorite books, "Another Monster at the End of This Book" by Jon Stone, illustrated by Michael Smollin. This and the original are just fun to read. I haven't found the original in a board book yet, though, so it was neat to find this one I could read to my son now. (We also have this app for iphone which my son loves also.)

All of these books were found at thrift stores (except for Dr. Seuss, that was a gift). How awesome is that?

Participating today in Read Aloud Thursday at Hope is the Word!

Enjoy your day and your latest book!


  1. We have that sesame street "Animal Alphabet" book too. I love that one!

    What a fun idea to blog through your board books from A to Z!

  2. What a neat idea! I love board books--they are such tangible reminders of my children's baby- and toddlerhoods. Sweet! The only one we have of the ones pictured here is the Seuss ABC book.

  3. Great idea!

    Yay you have Chicken Little! :)
