Children's Book Review: Alpha Betti
Written by: Carlene Morton
Illustrated by: Margeaux Lucas

* I somehow stumbled upon this book during a library catalog search on books about "messy rooms." After getting the book and reading it to the kids I realized it's more about ABC order and library skills than keeping your room clean. In her school library class Alpha Betti becomes a "Super ABC Hero." After learning about alphabetizing Betti comes home and cleans her room by organizing her things in ABC order. It was definitely a little advanced for the kids so I didn't really focus on the ABC order aspect too much while reading and we read it for enjoyment purposes only. For older kids who are learning ABC order skills this would be a cute story to help them reinforce those skills.
