A classic alphabet book by P. D. Eastman joins Are You My Mother? and Go, Dog. Go! in Dr. Seuss’s Bright & Early Book series.
This easy-to-read romp through the alphabet by P. D. Eastman—author-illustrator of Are You My Mother? and Go, Dog. Go!—is now available in Dr. Seuss’s classic Bright & Early Book series! From “an elephant on eggs” to “a zebra with a zither,” the perfect wordplay encourages beginning readers to pair words that start with the same letter in funny ways! Including a handy alphabet running down the side of each page, so that kids can keep track of which letter they’re on, this is an ideal addition to any family library and a great choice for back-to-school!

Bright and Early Books are perfect for beginning beginner readers! Launched by Dr. Seuss in 1968 with The Foot Book, Bright and Early Books use fewer and easier words than Beginner Books. Readers just starting to recognize words and sound out letters will love these short books with colorful illustrations. - (Random House, Inc.)

This book (reissued in paperback in 2000) is back as an easy reader in paper-over-board and library editions. Eastman's simple, humorous cartoons illustrate exactly what the words describe. This is a useful book for beginning readers (and nostalgic adults).
