View Full Version : ABC Wild Animals

I used to have an ABC book of wild animals: A for ape, B for buffalo, C for camel etc. Each one was accompanied by a few lines of verse. I couldn't read yet - my sister used to read it to me. Every letter was used - Q was for quagga. It wasn't until years later that I learned that the quagga was an extinct animal. How many kids of pre-reading age have heard of a quagga?!

The only letter for which there was no animal was X - this was for Extra, for which they had a bear.

I thought that book was more interesting than the A for apple, B for bus that I got when I started school.
