Alligators All Around: An Alphabet is a cute little book by Maurice Sendak. Published in 1962 as part of the Nutshell Library book set, Alligators All Around explores the alphabet page by page with drawings also by Sendak. Each page tells something about a family of alligators using words that begin with one of the letters of the alphabet and a drawing representing the scene. One of my favourites is the letter F: “Forever fooling”. This is a great book for kids that are learning the alphabet because it’s charming, funny, and very easy to read and they’ll learn the alphabet and new vocabulary without even noticing it! But I don’t think it’s a book just for kids. It doesn’t matter your age, you’ll enjoy this book if you give it a chance. Really, it takes less than five minutes to read and it’ll bring a smile to your face. Sendak was a very creative and talented artist, his legacy to us is incredible and should be remembered and passed on to the kids of the next generation.
