      M IS FOR MISCHIEF: An A to Z of Naughty Children… by Linda AshmanAshman, L. (2008). M is for Mischief: An A to Z of Naughty Children. New York: Dutton Children’s Books. 9780525475644 As the title implies, this alphabet picturebook features 26 misbehaving baddies. The rhyming and playful nature of the poems lend a person (read: me) to imagine he or she is the narrator on the show Gossip Girl, reporting what bad deeds Chuck Bass has done this week. While all of the poems feature alliteration o [...]

      My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week. I liked the idea of this book, and I probably would have liked the book if it wasn't so ding-dang long. This book tries to do too much at once, and it ends up being M is for Mixed-up Mess, and M is for Meh.

    3. Maddie Gerber on said:

      What I liked about this book was the humor but also the messages that come from this story. It is also a counting book to help them learn a-z and what crazy kids do.

    4. Anna - Kids on said:

      Love the rhyme and the art. Kids enjoyed the read as well and acknowledged the shitty behaviour described by the book.

    5. Catherine Page on said:

      Lively illustrations of naughty children leap across the pages of this book, which has 4 to 12 line poems describing twenty-six ill mannered children.The first letter of each child’s name matches the child’s misbehavior (“Evesdropping Erma” and “Kicking Ken”) and words featuring that letter are used throughout the poems. The poems are in a box of color on an equally colorful one or two page spread. Photographs of people and objects are subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) blended int [...]

      Picture Book Ashman, Linda. M is for Mischief: An A to Z of Naughty Children. New York: Dutton Children’s Books, 2008.Genre: Fiction In this alphabet picture book it consist of twenty-six unruly children, who are doing naughty things that correspond with one of the twenty-six letters in the alphabet. The situations deal with subjects such as anger, doodling, impoliteness, and laziness. In each case the children learn a valuable lesson at the end of his/her story. The lessons in this book are [...]

      Entertaining story with funny, but sometimes awkward rhyme schemes. The illustrations by Nancy Carpenter are terrific and we realized that we had a bit of a theme going this evening, since we also read Heroes of the Surf, which was illustrated by her as well. Overall, the various alphabet entries were entertaining, although some of the children have more traumatic endings than others. The way in which Linda Ashman incorporates alliteration with the selected letter makes the narrative somewhat of [...]

    9. Brittney Peay on said:

      It's a very creative rhyming book starting from a and ending with z. It talks about several different chi8ldren causing trouble like Untidy Ursula and Offensive Oscar. All of them are causing problems and all the conclusions to each of the letters and children are bad endings for either the child or someone with them. In the end the author is giving a good message about not struggling to be perfect but to at least be nice and then he threatens them by saying that is the don't they might just end [...]

    10. Rachel White on said:

      This alphabet book is the most unique alphabet book I've ever read. Each letter of the alphabet represents a different child. For example: L is for Lazy Lenore. Lenore loves to lounge. She will not do chores. R is for Rude Ruby. Ruby, at the roller rink, is raising quite a racket. Each letter is very different yet still follows the same crazy story line of crazy kids. I think students will enjoy this book because of it's funny story line and crazy naughty kids. Children anywhere from the age of [...]

      Ashman, L. & Carpenter, N. (2008). M is for Mischief: An A to Z of Naughty Children New York: Dutton Children's Books. Self Selection- Picture Book SoakI would recommentd this book for classroom use for introducing alliteration, discussing stanzas, rhythm and rhyme. This book has a lot in it that you could work into language arts lesson plans. Plus, it's fun! Alliteration is fun! When reviewing the book by looking at the pictures only, it is clear what each child is doing that is mischievous [...]

    12. Char Hight on said:

      I would say this book is great for third grade. Great for introducing adjectives and alliteration. This is a great read aloud for children who like challenging words. Also great book to pair with an introduction to using a dictionary. Lots of tier 2 words such as caution, lazy, mild-mannered, mauls, observes, hapless, devours, and ponder. Illustrations are a mixed of realistic photos and sketches.

    13. Christine on said:

      What a fun book! The rhymes and illustrations are very clever. A great vocabulary builder, as it had the students asking what gluttonous, fiendish,and other words meant. It could also lead to some great tete a tetes (another good vocabulary word) about appropriate behavior or misbehavior. We all especially liked "Doodling Daphne". And the votes are: Loved it = 122, Liked it = 14, Didn't like it = 8.

    14. Amy Wadsworth on said:

      This book was really fun, with creative pictures and rhyme. Parents and kids will get a kick out of this book, and it could spark some good conversations about appropriate behavior and being a good citizen. Kids who are already mischievous might just get ideas, though. I've had a few smart-alec students who might try to copy some of these behaviors. I'm not sure I'll read it at school, but I'd read it to my kids.

    15. Joenna on said:

      A great ABC picture book, but for older kids. Each letter has a different child, and they have a not so good characteristic like Gluttonous Griffin and Impolite Irma. Has bigger and unusual vocabulary. Uses collages of real photos and illustrations, which I ususally don't like, but it works well for this book.

    16. Ruth on said:

      I liked it. The kids are naughty which intrigues my children and allows for good teaching moments. One of my favorites is Selfish Stellaw as a child sprawls over toys to keep them away from othersmebody mentions Selfish Stella. The sound the letter makes is also repeated numerous times in each explanation of the character. A fun read for everyone.

    17. Jacqueline on said:

      This was a very creative way of introducing the alphabet as well as some good lessons about character all within the confines of a children's book. I really liked how fun the author made each character, but made it a point to show that those characters really weren't great people. I liked the final message at the very end.

    18. Aerin on said:

      A year ago, I beta read a collection of poems about children who all meet unfortunate fates. This is its companion book (close companion), an A to Z of naughty children. The illustrations are fun, as are most of the poems, as long as you emphasize to your impressionable children (because mine are not impressionable, no, not at all) that this book represents the obnoxious sort.

    19. Duane on said:

      This is an amazingly funny book for anyone who needs to do a storytime for elementary age kids. Using the alphabet, the author takes each letter and matches it with a terrible behavior. With funny rhymes and wonderful illustrations, you'll have kids laughing and trying to match people they know to the characters in the book. A must have in your picture book collection.

    20. Marcy on said:

      This book goes through the alphabet, each letter has an adjective to describe a naughty child like Eavesdropping Eva. This book could be a good tool to teach alliteration because a majority of the words on each page start with the same letter. They stories that go with each letter/naughty child, are things that children can relate to as well.

    21. Amy Brown on said:

      A poem for each letter of the alphabet and each poem is about another naughty child. Examples are Angry Abby who is "apt to argue anytime" and Doodling Dahne who "waits till Dad is dozing, then she doodles on his face." Lots and lots of alliteration. Also very funny.

    22. Randie D. Camp, M.S. on said:

      Each letter of the alphabet describes a naughty child and his/her naughty acts in a humorous, cautionary, heavily alliterated poem. Illustrations are quite complex, utilizing many different styles of art.

    23. Nicole on said:

      Carmen was probably too young for this one because she didn't enjoy it as much as I did. It tells about the mischief children can get into and for each letter many of the words in the description of the children begin with that letter. I thought it was a crack up and very creative writing.

    24. Lorna on said:

      Funny ABC book sure to interest middle graders as it chronicles very naughty (and often funny!) kids. Great vocabulary would lend itself well to vocab studies in the class. Illustrations are a clever collage of pen and ink with photographs.

    25. Janessa on said:

      This would be a great book to read for making poems where there is a repeating letter at the start of words. It could also be used as a "me" type of poem because each letter that the author focuses on is about a child that their first name starts with. Or you could do a combo poem! :)

    26. Tori on said:

      I wasn't very fond of this book, but I will say it would be helpful in teaching children the alphabet. In this book, the author matches each letter of the alphabet with a child who is very mischievous. I thought the rhymes were bad and it was not very entertaining to read.

    27. Susan on said:

      What would you get if you mixed some of the best stories out of the Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle books with the edgy, dark wit of Edward Gory's classic The Gashlycrumb Tinies? Pretty much this book that (perfectly well-behaved) children will want to hear again and again.

    28. Isela on said:

      This ABC book has great poem that deal with angry children. It begins with Angry Abby and ends with zany Zelda. This book has great examples of adjectives but I would not recommend using it as a read aloud for Pre-Kindergarten students because it takes time to read.
