Learning the alphabet is the critical first step in learning how to read. Written by Leigh Lowe (author of Prima Latina), the Alphabet Book teaches letter recognition, letter formation, and pencil-grip through repetition and tracing. Activities, created with the younger student in mind, make learning each letter simple and fun. Three-letter words, aided by beautiful illustrations, also provide a simple introduction to phonics. This book acts as a great supplement to any primary program or full-year preschool/kindergarten program.
