S: An Amazing Year with Zach A to Z
BC: "This is THE greatest book ever written. It made me laugh and I liked it a lot." - Zachary, 5 year old boy | "This book is very well constructed, it provides essential educational teaching such as the ABC and Months of the year. It was also a funny story for kids to relate to." - Julie Lopez, Kindergarten Teacher | "An Amazing Year with Zach: was funny and wildly entertaining. Erin's use of the ABC's in a very non traditional way and using a real life boy is what makes this book stand out among the rest. The colors were so vivid and the words are eloquently put together in a somewhat sing-song sort of way." - Sonny Lopez, Writer and Reporter
