Book of the Week: D is for Donut The Delicious and Colorful Way for Kids to Learn their ABCs.

“A is for Apple Fritter” and “B is for Beignet.” Get ready to dive into D is for Donut, a fun and delicious book that teaches kids the alphabet using donuts! Created by Rachel Teichman, author of the best-selling B is for Bagel, and part of her ABCD Eats series of books, D is for Donut has fun rhyming text that helps kids learn their ABCs through donut classics, from Jelly and Rainbow Sprinkles to Éclairs and Old-Fashioneds, while also introducing donuts from around the world.  The life-size photos look ready to eat and keep kids asking for more.

The rhyming text in D is for Donut fun and educational for kids as well as the adults reading to them. The bright backgrounds, photos, as well as a few recipes for creating the donuts and toppings, provide everything to keep kids’ interest. Practicing ABCs never looked so yummy! 

I love how the book rhymes and I recommend it for young children ages 3-5.

D is for Donut publishes on June 2 – National Donut Day.
