Q is for Duck

Q is for Duck is a delightful alphabet book for kindergarteners (could maybe go a little younger or little older). The book keeps you guessing...for example "G is for horse", why? Because a horse gallops!

Bethany and I read half of this book yesterday and we'll read the other half today. Very engaging. It has really helped her with her beginning sounds.

I found these websites that offer lesson plans and ideas for this book and other alphabet books.

Make your own alphabet guessing book.
Read Write Think offers this lesson plan for 3-5th graders using this book. Struggling writers are the target audience in this lesson.
Home Education Magazine reminds us that the ABC's are not just for kindergarten kids!

Try to get ahold of this book and read it aloud. You'll find your children (and yourself) trying to guess why "A is for zoo".
