01/01/2020 | Online Storytime

Naming the letters of the alphabet and knowing the sounds each letter makes is a critical pre-reading skill. Did you know that singing the alphabet song and books like "A is for Apple" are only the beginning?

There are several activities and Library books that make practicing the alphabet fun, books like Z is for Moose. In this story Zebra thinks the alphabet should be simple and orderly. A is for Apple. B is for Ball. Easy! Zebra is impatient and can't wait for his turn. He interrupts. He barges in. It is such a long time to M! But when M isn't for Moose, it is for Mouse instead, Zebra is crushed! Can Zebra find a place for Moose that isn't M? He can! Can you figure out where his place is before Moose does?
