Books About The Letter A

My kids love when it’s time to look for more Letter of the Week books. To find as many books that might be right for me, I search the Internet and then reserve a huge stack at the library. There are 30 books on the shelf. Only ten of them might be chosen for me from the stack. That’s because I only include the things that we like.

Are You an Ant? by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries

Are You an Ant by Judy Allen and Tudor Humphries

I love this book so much. If you’re looking for a way to teach nonfiction to kids in preschool through grade three in a way that makes sense to them, this book is for you. People talk to the reader as if he were an ant. “Go and look for food.” Seeds are cool. Bugs and wood lice are also there. Springtails are tasty, but it’s hard to get them because they jump all over the place. You’re not a very good hunter, after all. Find bugs that have been stepped on. They’re simple. This is a great book because it’s educational, funny, and has great illustrations.

There’s an Alligator under My Bed, by Mercer Mayer

There is a story about a boy who has an alligator under his bed but his parents don’t believe him. My kids always want to read this story to me. A trail of food leads the alligator away from the house. I think that, for most kids, this book will help them deal with their fears at night. It’s possible that you don’t want to give your child any new ideas.

The Icky Sticky Anteater, by Dawn Bentley

As an anteater, it’s hard to like ants. One day, an anteater wants to be like his friends. Instead, he learns that it’s better to be who you are.

Hooray for Amanda and Her Alligator, by Mo Willems

Here’s a great book by the author of the popular Pigeon books, who also wrote this one (as well as the Elephant and Piggie series). It’s another simple and funny book that both kids and adults will enjoy reading again and again. Willems did a great job. These are stories about Amanda and her stuffed alligator, like when the alligator found a price tag on his tail and was shocked to learn he was only seven cents.

An Anteater Named Arthur, by Bernard Waber

An Anteater Named Arthur, by Bernard Waber

I can’t believe it took me so long to find this old book. It’s so interesting! It was written 50 years ago, but it’s still a great story. No, this isn’t based on Marc Brown’s popular Arthur books and TV show. Because it’s not about Arthur, it’s about his mother, who tells about him in a book. He doesn’t like red ants because he only likes brown ones. I can’t write a good review of this book. Go and find it for yourself!

Apple Farmer Annie, by Monica Wellington

There are a lot of books for kids about apples, but this one is simple and sweet. To help young preschoolers learn how apples get from the tree to their kitchen, this is a good thing for them to look at.

Baby Alligator, by Ginjer L. Clarke

These books are great for older preschoolers who love to learn about the world. This book and others in the All Aboard Reading series are great for them. I know what I’m talking about if you have a child who always wants to know what’s going on. Your preschooler will learn a lot about alligators, like that they can have up to 6,000 teeth and grow as long as a pick-up truck.

Zack’s Alligator, by Shirley Mozelle

This is a book that we own. I’ve read it more times than I can remember. He gets an alligator key chain in the mail from his uncle, and Zack is very excited about it. A full-grown alligator named Bridget is born when the water is added. It’s fun to tell my kids about Zack and Bridget’s stories over and over.

Apples, Apples, Apples, by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace

Apples, Apples, Apples, by Nancy Elizabeth Wallace

In this book about a rabbit family who goes to an apple orchard, we love the cut paper illustrations. The parts of an apple, how an apple tree grows, and how to make applesauce will be taught to kids. People say things like “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” and sing an apple song at the end of the book.

How to Make an Apple Pie and See the World, by Marjorie Freeman

With a globe next to you, read this book! When the market is closed and you have to go around the world to get the ingredients for an apple pie, it’s easy. To get wheat, you can go to Italy. Sri Lanka has cinnamon. You can also go to Jamaica for salt, and there are a lot of other fun cities. I love this story because it is so creative and fun!

Hey, Little Ant, by Phillip and Hannah Hoose

It’s about a big boy about to squash a little insect. My kids love it. If we make a game out of smashing bugs, people will talk about whether or not we should.

Ten Apples Up on Top, by Theo. LeSeig

I didn’t know that Theo. LeSieg was Dr. Seuss’s pen name. In this book, a lion, dog, and cat compete to see who can balance the most apples on top of their heads. It’s also a good book for kids who are learning to read sight words as they start to read. Dr. Seuss did a great job of making interesting stories out of simple words. “Then, look at this. Eight! Eight at the top! An apple a day keeps the doctor away. “No one will fall.” Check it out!

The Apple Pie Tree, by Zoe Hall

The Apple Pie Tree, by Zoe Hall

During the winter, the apple tree in your back yard is brown and bare. Then, in the fall, it’s full of ripe red apples. And a tasty apple pie you made yourself.

Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, by Judith Viorst

It was one of my favorite books when I was a child. It was published more than 40 years ago, and I can’t believe it. Alexander had a bad day because of a lot of things, not the least of which was having lima beans for dinner. His mom tells him that “Some days are like that.” The book doesn’t end until his mom says that. You could start a great conversation with your child by reading this together. You could talk about how to deal with things that happen every day.

The Lady with the Alligator Purse, illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott

It’s a silly song about a baby named Tiny Tim who wants to eat a bathtub. My boys love it. There is a lady with an alligator purse who Miss Lucy wants to call.
