A was an Archer, and shot at a frog! Very strange alphabet this one. Written around C. 1700 by whom, we don't know as yet.
I do love
alphabets they bring out the artist in me. I can't
draw but I can find images and hopefully latch them
to the rhyme or poem. This specific one has no name
A was an
It was written around circa
1700, by whom we shall probably never know. It is
in quite a few books but I took this from the
Oxford Book of Children's Verse, which is a must
buy for all children who love verse both long and
short. An ideal Birthday or Christmas Present or
better still a Graduation to Junior, Middle of

Maybe we could make a
Winnie the Pooh Alphabet, shall I give it a
Winnie and the missing V
I forgot to mention that there isn't a letter V in
this alphabet either. I can only think that the J
and V were not in use, though I do believe they
were. The other reason could be in the manner of
AlphaBet it is. I am going to do a little research
and see if we can find out its meaning.
Either way this is our blog for today and tonight
I shall work on The Winnie the Pooh Alphabet I
promised you all. Hugs Diddilydeedot.
