Runaway Alphabet Review

     Runaway Alphabet is a picture book written by Kari-Lynn Winters and illustrated by Ben Frey. It's a delightful book to read to your children or grandchildren. I enjoyed reading it and hope you do too! Here's an excerpt:
                      At the carnival Pa shivers.
                      "It's c-c-cold. Maybe some
                      food will warm us up."
                      "Pa, listen to the drums!"


     The book has an introduction written by Marilyn Chapman, PhD who says that the book promotes 'young children's literacy development'.
     The letters of the alphabet are presented in a fun way. Here's another excerpt:
                       rrrrrr, rumbles the snowmobile that takes people up
                       the mountain. Nan grabs a tube and hops on.
