Loved the entire Nutshell Library and am so happy to share these books with my daughter now. One piece of advice- pay attention to the size of the book you are ordering! The 5×7 version is great for my almost 2 year old – I imagine the smaller version would be quite frustrating. Check it out!
Amazon.com Review Those alligators really do get around! Whether they’re entertaining elephants, making macaroni, having headaches, or throwing tantrums, the rascally reptiles are never napping! Maurice Sendak’s alphabet book will have young “readers” reciting their ABC’s in no time. The three-color illustrations endear these quite quarrelsome critters to readers’ hearts. Mom, Dad, and Junior are brimming with personality; the collective images create a complete picture of the nutty–yet remarkably familiar–household. Somehow, these likable lizards manage to capture the foibles and peculiarities of human nature better than many bipeds ever could. Yet beneath their very vain and sometimes shockingly spoiled surface, the friendly fanged creatures have a charm that no one can resist. Sendak, beloved author-illustrator of such classics as Where the Wild Things Are, In the Night Kitchen, and Chicken Soup with Rice, much like his green gator gang, is always getting giggles. (Baby to preschool) –Emilie Coulter –This text refers to the Board book edition.
Alligators All Around (The Nutshell Library) Paperback – March 15, 1991 by Maurice Sendak (Author, Illustrator) Review
I grew up with the video “Really Rosie” by Carol King based on these books and It is wonderful! I am really enjoying reading/singing these books to my 3 year old daughter at night and she loves them too. (I got the 4 pack) and they have taught her the alphabet, (expanding her vocabulary quite a bit), the months of the year in “Chicken Soup with Rice” and to count to 10 and back again in “One was Johnny”. Maurice Sendak is probably my favorite children’s writer and if you know “Where the Wild Things Are” or “Little Bear” in both print and TV, these books are a must have for any parent and child. A real Treasure! -Read Reviews-
Sweet & Simple. ..loved this book when my daughters were little & was delighted to find it again for my grandsons to enjoy as they learn the alphabet!
