Ideas for using this book in classroom or library:

  • Review the alphabet with younger kids.  See if kids can guess what the letter stands for on the pages Moose messed up.
  • Have you ever thrown a tantrum or seen your little brother or sister do it?  How does your mom, dad, sibling, or friend help you feel better?
  • Read along with A is for Salad and other isn’t-alphabet books.
