"Hopkins paves the way for children to think about the alphabet (and perhaps poetry as well), by offering one word for each letter and then a short, non-rhyming poem of definition that includes at least one more word also beginning with the letter. . . . Likely to be a popular choice for teachers to use in the classroom." —Kirkus Reviews

"A clever and child-friendly book of pithy poetry. . . . Both classes and individuals will find something here to ponder and play with." —Booklist
