Booklist: Offbeat Alphabet Books

Can you handle this? That is the first question I will request you to ask yourself before you decide to buy these for a child. These alphabet books will open out a barrage of questions and follow up discussions from the child. Before you begin read the book by yourself, anticipate questions and read up on topics that you may not know answers for. Here is a short list of my favourite offbeat Alphabet Books. These maybe difficult to source and buy. Yet, I am adding buy links for them with a list at the bottom. There are many more like these. But I am choosing not to overwhelm you. 🙂
