E-Mergency! by Tom Lichetnheld-OPTIONAL

Lichtenheld, Tom.  Fields-Meye, Ezra.  E-Mergency! 40 pgs.  Chronicle Books, 2011.  $16.99.  Inside cover:  “What Happens when the most important letter in the alphabet gets a big owie?  One of the other letters has to take her place while she recuperates, but who?  Z is too sleepy.  And Y asks too many questions.  Is O well-rounded enough to handle the job?  It’s a real E-MERGENCY!”  Kids will love it when the reader attempts to say the words with E missing from the sentences.  “I’m roady to roam!” “I’m oxcitod”  We laughed in our attempt.  This book could be used in primary grades introducing or reinforcing the alphabet.  Pre-K.  EL (K-3).  OPTIONAL.  Reviewer: SL
