3.There will always "be enough room" for Chick Chicka Boom Boom in your child's library, but parents be warned — this book is an earworm that will most certainly get stuck in your brain.
4.B Is For Baller not only teaches the ABCs of basketball but also some interesting "facts." For example: "The Wright Brothers invented flight. Michael 'Air' Jordan perfected it." And if you don't know, well, now you know.
5.Co-written by Raj Haldar (the rapper known as Lushlife), P Is for Pterodactyl: The Worst Alphabet Book Ever deftly explains the intricacies and anomalies of the English language that can be very confusing to kids (and adults). Like why do "gnat" and "knot" both have different first letters that are silent but still sound the same?
6.The large grooved type and "lift-a-flaps" of A Is For Apple offer a hands-on way for the kiddies to get a real touch and feel for the shapes of letters.
7.Teach some super serious alliteration with A B See where every letter is illustrated and comprised of a myriad of animals, objects, and other interesting items that start with, wait for it...that very same letter.
8.Not the NYC neighborhood, this version of Alphabet City still happens in an urban environment but takes everyday objects and shows kids that letters are hidden everywhere in the city.

10.Alligators All Around, a lesser-known work from the incomparable Maurice Sendak, follows a family of gators through their daily lives with each letter of the alphabet serving as its own little, leathery, reptilian tale.
11.An entire universe of anthropomorphic green peas highlights various careers like "Truckers and Teachers" or "Scientists and Sailors" in the super colorful LMNO Peas.
12.Remember when Kanye jumped onstage at the VMAs during Taylor Swift's acceptance speech? That's pretty much the plot of Z Is For Moose, except with a Zebra and a Moose and the alphabet standing in for a music awards show.
13.For parents who are fans of New Yorker cartoons, Oops Pounce Quick Run: An Alphabet Caper follows the the case (both upper and lower) of a dog, a mouse, and a missing ball. Your kids will totally XOXO it too!
14.For little eyes, I Spy Letters is chock full of picture clues and rhyming riddles for learning all of those letters. Great for bedtime reading when the kids are "undercover."
15.Alpha Oops! The Day Z Went First is a letter-based tale of the last being first. The letter Z finally has finally had enough of always coming in last in alphabetic order. But once those letters start to get out of order, watch out because all heck breaks loose.
16.With plenty of flaps and foldouts, each page of Animalphabet poses a question/clue to move kids to the next critter in (alphabetical order of course) "Who can slither better than a rabbit? A snake! Who can growl better than a snake? A tiger!"
19.It's a dirty job but someone's gotta do it. So why not make the most of it. That's the premise of, I Stink!, which follows the alphabetic eating habits of a garbage truck. Remember, even if you don't, kids love things that are gross!
20.So what if you can't make it to the Met, your kids can spend a night (or day) at the museum learning their letters through art from different time periods and cultures with Museum ABC: Metropolitan Museum of Art.
21.Dr. Seuss's ABC, as you can clearly see, is a wonderful reading experience for children ages two through three. Between A to Z, you'll find letters like C, D, and E, and illustrations and characters that will make you ask, "How could that possibly be?"
22.Eating the Alphabet is all about teaching children the wonders of a healthy diet fueled by colorful fruits and veggies (from apples to zucchinis) with the help of both upper- and lowercase letters.
23.From astronauts to zoologists ABC What Can She Be? lays the groundwork for introducing exciting careers to young girls with each letter of the alphabet. The future is indeed female!
24.For the young Padawan in your life, look no further than this galaxy for Star Wars ABC-3PO: Alphabet Book. That first rhyming Admiral Ackbar entry was enough to get me to buy this book without turning another page. "It's trap!" Indeed it is you magnificent Mon Calamari. Indeed it is.
25.OK, we've had our fair share of alphabet books about animals but now we finally have one that also includes flatulence (which the little ones just adore). F Is For Fart is the book you will regret buying but the kids will giggle so hard you'll be willing to overlook the seemingly noxious content.
26.The ABCs of Space is so smart! This scientific series of books grows with its curious young readers starting with the basics like "A is for Asteroid" then getting into deeper explanations and factoids for fertile young minds.
And pretty soon you'll be reading them Stuart Little (who, despite the look on his face, probably feels that the title of the book he's holding was super misleading).
