Description

A playful way to learn letters and numbers.

Three cheers for letters! Long live numbers!

The letters and numerals have never met before, and they're very curious about each other. Zero and the letter O hit it off. 3 and E can't stop looking at each other. However, the number one and the letter A both claim to be first. Letters can make words and stories, and numbers can count. But which are better?

Preschoolers and kindergarteners learn letter and number recognition in this funny story reminiscent of Chicka Chicka Boom Boom. Lois Barr's funny jokes and Stephanie Laberis's energetic illustrations are kid-pleasing fun.
