Now, how does this change if you make it a date palm?

Very strongly-rhythmic ABC book featuring the mischievous lowercase letters getting into scratch by overloading a coconut tree and all tumbling down to be rescued by their parents (who are, of course, the uppercase letters). This one is a great deal of fun and compulsively readable; the kid enjoys listening to it as much as I enjoy reading it to him, and it’s one of the first books he’s started asking to have read to him again as soon as we’ve finished reading it the first time. Good stuff indeed. ****
