Alphabet Books

1. Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by  Bill Martin and John Archambault is a favourite in our house.  It is a fun alphabet book that will help your child learn her lowercase letters.  The letters are climbing to the top of the coconut tree but they are much too heavy! They all fall down… BOOM!

2. LMNO Peas by Keith Baker is a darling book that teaches the alphabet as well as a variety of careers and jobs.

3. ABC: An Amazing Alphabet Book by Dr. Seuss is a book that is sure to please your little one.  This book is in keeping with the Dr. Seuss we know and love. It is whimsical and playful.  I also enjoy its simplicity, the use of repetition, and that kids learn both uppercase and lowercase letters.

4. Max’s ABC by Rosemary Wells tells the story of the events following the escape of Max’s ants from his ant farm!  Each letter of the alphabet helps to recount what happens next in the story.
