About the book:
Cal D. Cat returns to the library, and this time he and his friends are working on a research assignment! The cute kitty from L is for Library shadows students around the media center as they follow a recommended research strategy through the alphabet:
E is for essential reference items to use.
F is for facts in the sources we’ll choose.
O is for organize, sort and cite facts in turn.
P is for product. Now we'll show what we’ve learned.
U is for understanding. It increased as we searched.
V is for verify that we’ve done our best work.
A great way to introduce basic research concepts, this engaging picture book will get children excited about working their own way through the alphabet!

STARRED REVIEW: “Toni Buzzeo's done it again. She's created a short,engaging alphabet book that ably introduces students to the steps of successful research. This book fulfills the need to quickly engage students while walking them through the research process.” —Liz Deskins, Library Media Connection
“In this timely new picture book from stellar children's author Toni Buzzeo, readers explore the inner workings of the research report. Written in alphabet style, the clever text hums long with a lovely rhythm and cadence . . . This book deserves a place in every teacher's classroom where thoughtful and original research writing is a goal.” —Ruth Culham, President, The Culham Writing Company
“The concept of research is charmingly introduced in this rhyming alphabet book... The attractive illustrations show engaged students selecting and reading material, working at the computer, and pausing to play with the frisky feline.” —Maura Bresnahan, School Library Journal
