A IS FOR MUSK OX, by Erin Cabatingan, illustrated by Matthew Myers (Roaring Brook Press, 2012).
This book?is so funny (and I even learned a lot about musk oxen)!
“F is for musk ox — Because musk oxen have fur. And lots of it. Does this fur make me look fat?”
I love the way Musk Ox finds a way to be every single letter–except for M.
“Well, I felt kinda bad about what happened back at the beginning of the book, so I figured the apple could have my spot.”
This is a musk ox and a zebra with loads of personality. The relationship between them is a hoot–kids will love it. And how fun would it be in a classroom to have the kids make an alphabet book about themselves, figuring out why they should be each letter.
