Overview: Zebra is gathering everyone together. It's Zebra's job to coordinate a big event. It's going to be an alphabet book! But the job isn't as easy as Zebra thought. Moose means well, but meaning well isn't everything. A bad surprise is coming his way. Moose is big, and he'll make big trouble. How can Zebra save the day?
My Review: I loved this book. As a mother who believes in bedtime stories and a former first grade teacher I've read a ton of picture books. Consequently, it takes a lot for a book to make me laugh out loud and even more to make me want to read it as soon right away. This book did both. The title immediately pulled me in because everyone knows Z is not for Moose. I wanted to solve the mystery of how the alphabet got so messed up. I wanted to know why Kelly Bingham thinks Z is for Moose. I also loved Paul Zelinsky's illustrations of Moose and Zebra . I laughed at each turn of the page as I watched the increasing conflict between Zebra and Moose. It was amazing to see these two characters come alive in only 32 pages. This book gets an A+ from me and will definitely become a part of my picture book library.

Go here for full info but in short: sign up on the linky list, celebrate small things of awesomeness with a Friday post, hop around and congratulate others on their celebrations. That's IT!
Today I am celebrating another A to Z challenge successfully done! 26 letters never seemed so overwhelming when I used them to teach my first graders how to read, but blogging about one letter for six days a week almost did me in. However, I survived to blog another day and for that I celebrate!
