Dr. Seuss’s ABC for A-to-Z

Standard

It’s all about the alphabet in April, and we can’t have the alphabet without asking the timeless question: “Big A little a, what begins with A?” Actually, technically you can but it would be a lot less amusing. Dr. Seuss’s picture book is an absolute classic, and the alphabet should feel very lucky to have it. (Please note: I’ve adopted the book’s punctuation of the title. It’s definitely funnier).

 


Dr. Seuss’s ABC by Dr. Seuss. Amazon for $3.99. Arguably the most entertaining alphabet book ever written, this classic Beginner Book by Dr. Seuss is perfect for children learning their ABCs. Featuring a fantastic cast of zany characters — from Aunt Annie’s alligator to the Zizzer-Zazzer-Zuzz, with a lazy lion licking a lollipop and an ostrich oiling an orange owl — Dr. Seuss’s ABC is a must-have for every young child’s library.
Originally created by Dr. Seuss, Beginner Books encourage children to read all by themselves, with simple words and illustrations that give clues to their meaning.

At Amazon, the Book Buys You

Standard

OK, that’s not entirely accurate. Or remotely accurate, but I couldn’t resist the joke.

Normally, about now I’d be telling you about a book you can buy from Amazon, but today I figured I’d flip that. I don’t know if you know, but Amazon will buy your books as well. It’s like a big, natural circle of reading. Amazon pays for shipping, so it won’t cost you anything. Current best-sellers are probably your best bet, but at least that takes some of the guilt out of buying a full-priced new book.

And it’s not just for books, either. You can trade in movies, video games and other things, and get an Amazon gift card in exchange. When I logged in, it even told me what some things I’d bought from Amazon were worth, which is nice to know, not that I’m parting with my Zumba World Party, which is the most fun game ever, but I digress.

So you can use books to feed your reading habit. It’s beautiful, in a way.

Anyway, thus concludes this public service announcement.
