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:

Alphabet Alliteration:
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.

  1. This is awesome! I can see children loving it and not even realizing they’re learning!

    I remember you wanted to find an illustrator. Have you explored Reddit? I’m not there a lot but I’ve seen people post requests for help with various types of projects including graphic arts. It might be worth killing an hour there to check out what might be available there.
