Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Wonderful things are being invented every day in Al Pha's world-fire, the wheel, even shadows! His big chance to be part of history comes when the King announces that the twenty-six recently invented letters need to be put in order. Al makes a bet with himself that he's the man for the job. Through a series of funny events, he eventually finds the perfect order for the letters, and the king rewards him by naming his creation the "Alphabet."

Sure to entertain and engage young readers, this book turns the ABC's inside out. Kids will laugh at the quirky illustrations and clever wordplay, while wondering where the alphabet really did get its order.

Fun read 11 juillet 2011

Amy Krouse Rosenthal is very creative, and this is another one of her fun reads. She presents a story describing how the order of the ABC's came into being. Some of the ideas are a little odd (okay Al, becomes 'K L to describe how Al Pha determined putting K and L after one another), and others are just cute (selection of where to add P). We are a big fan of Ms. Rosenthal's other books, and were not disappointed. Although this book does pale in comparison to Spoon, my son still loves reading it.

My four year old Granddaughter really enjoys this book. Learning the alphabet was proving to be somewhat of a challenge and this has helped!!!

Decent, but flawed 4 décembre 2011

As a parent of a child who is a little too obsessed with the alphabet, we've seen a *lot* of books featuring those distinguished 26 characters. (Alphabeasties and Alpha-oops have been my favorites, for what it's worth.) Our son found "Al Pha's Bet" during a recent library trip and I thought it looked promising since we've liked several of AKR's other books (Little Pea/Hoot/Oink, Spoon, Duck! Rabbit!). The idea is good: how did the alphabet get ordered? It concocts a fun and witty little myth that's enjoyable to read and doesn't drag on for too long.

The problem with the book is that the main character, named Al Pha, makes a bet with himself that he can come up with the best ordering of the alphabet. That is the "Bet" in the title of the book. The problem is the "bet" is never described in the story, in fact, the word "bet" is used as if a bet is just a goal. As we reread this book several times, I kept wondering, "what the heck am I going to tell my son when he asks me what a bet is?" - because a bet means you get something if you're successful and you lose something if you're not. Then I'd have to explain to him that the book has taken some poetic license with the definition of "bet".... and then I'd have to explain what "poetic license" means... Why do this to us? It would have been so easy to make up a good bet, like someone would write a song for Al if he won the ordering contest. Or something. (Actually, the ABC song is alluded to quite cleverly in the book.) Seriously, what's the point of teaching the alphabet but teaching the wrong definition of a simple word.

I've seen reviews like the one I just wrote for other books on Amazon and always rolled my eyes at the ridiculous and far-too-serious parents who write them. I never thought I'd be one of them, but here I am... What can I say? - this issue bothered me more and more as we reread the book.
