KIRKUS REVIEW

Rogers returns to the class from Tiptoe into Kindergarten (1999) to introduce a flurry of letters and words in the always-winning treasure-hunt format that will have eyes poring over the pages. Using a letter-day approach, the class works its way through the alphabet—upper and lower case—focusing on activities each day that highlight the featured letter, but readers are encouraged to search the picture beyond that obvious connection. So, on Bb day, there are not only backpacks, but a ball, bat, boat, books, boots, bottles, boxes, boy, braid brown, and brush. On Nn day, it’s not just nickels, but necklace, nine, noses, note, numbers, nut. A good number of the items are none too easy to locate, but they are all there to the attentive eye. This not a primer on the ABCs, but an extension of the letter-learning process, a vocabulary builder that will test readers with the likes of easel, knees, llama, quarrel, and tambourines. (Picture book. 4-6)
