I mentioned my alphabet book in my last post and I know you are curious, so here is a sample. Don’t hold back the comments. The lack of response from publishers gives me no place to go. So without further ado, here is the first four letters of:
The Advanced ABCs
By: April E. Sutton
Amazing A announces its name for all to hear in April and angle, but can be shy as an apple blossom. Katie has her a inside, but that doesn’t keep her quiet.
Allyson and Allen like to eat apples. (Did you notice a word that has an a so shy it hides in the word without a sound?) The word is eat. Don’t be sad or angry. Every letter has a place in a word for a reason.
Bubbly B bounces off the lips. Bound at the beginning, or bumping around inside a word, B blossoms on your lips. Without B, Bees would be ees without a buzz, and bed would be ed! Without B, what would happen to Brad, broom, or boom? Boy-o-boy it would be bad without B! There would be no balls, bats, boats, or bean bags. Without B, Benjamin couldn’t balance on a beam. Without B, there would be a ban on bamboo, bananas, birds, and the Band-Aid.
Clever C causes confusion. C is for cat the story goes, plus car, cap and cub. C not only has a hard sound, but a soft sound also. C is also for circus at the city center. For one cent you can see the camel.
The calm calico cat is certain Chad’s caged critter tastes like candy. Cindy, a clever child, carves cheese for the coy cat and carries him to a chair. Chad’s caged critter gets another candle on his cake. Crazy!
Daring D dances down the page. Down in front, or at the end, dedicated D dances on your tongue. Dandy D gives us dogs that dance, dice and darts, deals and dates. With D our days delight in daring deeds.
Dad and David dine on delicious dates. Daughter Debbie does difficult drama in Dayton. Dan and a dauphin dive until dawn. Dazzling dandelions decorate the dining table.
