Absolutely charming book illustrating joyous imaginary play.

This was a fun read. We got it from the library and didn’t know what to expect. I didn’t realize it was an abc book but the statements were so off the wall at times it didn’t seem like an abc book. My kids 10-6 were all laughing and enjoying it together.

Meh. It's fun to see an alphabet book where verbs are the starting letter as opposed to nouns. But it also wasn't a super great book either.
