A young child has many beloved stuffed animals--at least one for each letter of the alphabet. But as her mother tucks her into bed and she prepares to slip into slumber, she realizes one of her cuddly creatures is missing. Which one could it be? She must recite the alphabet and remember all her critters in order to figure out which animal slid out of her alphabed.
