Queenie Macabout this book: "It's an absolutely perfect day for…" is a children's alphabet book, but definitely not your ordinary ABC book. Tongue twisting alliterations make this book as much fun for adults as it is for the kids. Each page is a wonderful, whimsical, wacky illustration filled with animals and objects that pertain to the letter it represents. For example "Horrendously hair-styled, high-heeled, happily hop scotching, hungry hippos hankering for Harriet's heavenly hamburgers" adorn the "H" page. And then there are the bubbles, bubbles flow throughout the book, I put them in because I love bubbles, bubbles are fun and there's no such thing as an angry bubble.
"It's an absolutely perfect day for…" is my very first book. I am primarily a watercolor artist with a very whimsical but realist style. People were always telling me that I should do children's books so I decided to give it a try. I have to say that I am pleased with and proud of the result.
Speech therapists tell me that alliteration is useful for developing speech and pronunciation with repetitious sounding out of words and letters. I think that it is just plain fun.
Midwest Book Review says: "It's an absolutely perfect day for… is enthusiastically recommended as a wonderful book for parents to read aloud to children, and help them learn to sound out alliterations-and perhaps to kindle renewed interest in the joy of playing outside!
