Alphabet Family Band

Add a little rhythm to your ABCs with this latest addition to the ROYGBaby series

Grab your congas, flutes, and xylophones—it’s an Alphabet Family Band! Bright, colorful illustrations feature members of a family playing a host of different musical instruments in a warm island setting. Harmoniously combining two concepts (letters and music), this lively board book will soon become a family favorite!


"On the first spread, 'Auntie Bangs Congas / Daddy Enjoys Flute.' This ABC configuration (two or three letters per page form simple noun-verb-noun sentences) cleverly continues throughout, culminating in 'you' zigging, zagging, and zooming during the family’s climactic beach performance." - The Horn Book, Summer 2017 Board Book Roundup
"An extended family makes beautiful music together with a wide array of instruments. 'Auntie Bangs Congas / Daddy Enjoys Flute' reads the first two pages, setting a pattern in which each family member is introduced playing their instrument of choice as family dog Ramone provides a bit of action... A delightful ditty of a book." - Kirkus Reviews
