An Alphabet Trip to the Limerick Zoo Review

Since the next Holiday on our list is St. Patty's is a review for a very cute illustrated ebook of limericks called An Alphabet Trip to the Limerick Zoo by Jeanette Ramirez and the AIC College of Deisgn.

The author takes us through the entire alphabet, limerick by limerick and picture by picture. The rhymes are engaging and unique and the images are lively and colorful, easily appealing to a young audience.  I am a huge fan of the use of limericks....they are one form of poetry that I feel has a beat you can miss and makes you want to read it to feel it and share it too. I've read many books of poems to my Munchkin and the interest usually wanes within a couple of pages.....not with this ebook!! We read the whole things from front to back in one sitting!! 

There are a few different options for buying this book: download it from the site onto your nook, kindle, or tablet or you can print it out and put it in a binder. Right now, for $9.99, the book is available as well as a companion coloring book!! 

Here is a Sample Illustration:

And the limerick that goes with it:
I just love that rhythm.

Here's a you tube video (that also discusses the option of being an affiliate)

This book is a great option for home schoolers, schools, teacher resources, or just a chance to teach your child more about poetry. The poems will inspire and the art will do the same....which is great because a coloring book come with it. I am totally pleased with my copy of this fun ebook. I think you ought to give it a try!!
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
