He wrote his first book, The Little Squeegy Bug, for his brother, Bernard, an artist, to illustrate while recuperating from war wounds. It was published in 1945 and the brothers would go on to collaborate on 10 more books by 1955. He earned a master's degree and doctorate in early childhood education from Northwestern University and became principal of an elementary school in Evanston, Ill., where he developed innovative reading programs.

This book is a fun way to learn the alphabet for young children. Learn what happens when too many leters go up the coconut tree! When reading the story, you can have the child repeat after you while telling the story to make it fun and educational.
