Favorite Alphabet Books

Alphabet books can be great fun. I usually try to have at least 1-2 out of the library at a time, to work into our daily reading time. And of course, a few are in our permanent collection. Here are some of our favorites.

AlphaOops: The Day Z Went First by Alethea Kontis: what happens when the alphabet is out of order? A fun different way to look at the alphabet. We also love AlphaOops: H is for Halloween.

Amazing Action AlphabetThe Amazing Action Alphabet by See Hear Do Company: this book is more of a method to teach letters and sounds. We use this when we are doing letter of the day/week activities. But if we read one letter, the kids invariably ask to read more. Learn more about it here.
