I just had to share my love of this new picture book written by Alison Murray. It’s incredibly clever, charming and importantly; educational.

It is a traditional verse written to tell all the letters in the alphabet. The narrative follows a pesky little dog who is after some delicious apple pie. Each letter is written in a large, bright font and describes the dog’s escapades to get some pie from the initial spotting of the APPLE pie to JUMPING up on the table and finally ZZZ’ing after eating lots of pie. It’s a lovely tale made new and exciting by the gorgeous illustrations.

I highly recommend it for anyone looking to teach their child the alphabet without it being too obvious that they’re actually reading an educational book!
