Genre: Children’s book
Grade Level: K-2
Readers who will like this: Children who see things outside of the box, visually, or children who likes art.
Rating/Response: 5 This book is a great way to show students how to look at everything at a different angle.
One question you would ask before a read aloud: What can you see while look at the alphabet?
Reading Strategy: Visualization
Rationale for Strategy: This book would make a great read aloud for visualization because each letter of the alphabet is looked at four different ways and are turned out to be something else. This is be an introduction for an art unit or how to teach students a fun way of remembering the alphabet.
