About the Book

At first glance, this book is a lovely collection of animal short stories following the adventures of various animal friends as you progress through the alphabet. But it is much more than a simple book of short stories. The Great Alphabet Reminder Book is designed to assist young students in relearning and remembering the significance of the alphabet. The focus is on repetition and association of the letters in the alphabet with particular words and sounds. Many new vocabulary words will provide the young reader with the basis for remembering the alphabet letter in question. Vocabulary that may be unfamiliar to the young reader has been underlined. An explanation of these words, in terms akin to a young reader's insight, appears at the end of each story. The Great Alphabet Reminder Book reinforces usage of the alphabet for young readers. It complements and reviews the work of the classroom instructor who is teaching the alphabet. Children will delight in the stories, develop a strong sense of phonics, and enjoy the beautiful illustrations which accompany each story.
