View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Alliteration Alphabet: A fun way to teach preliteracy skills to kids! was developed by two educators who needed to supplement the curriculums they were using in their early intervention, preschool/preschool disabled and autistic support classrooms. Alliteration Alphabet focuses the child s attention, not only to the letters and their sounds, but also to the beginning of the words. It teaches them to notice the common feature/sound of the word while making a real world connection with the illustrations. Emergent readers also use alliteration as a method for learning phonological awareness. Fun and engaging learning methods, like those outlined in Alliteration Alphabet, will create motivating educational moments for the children, while supporting their overall development in becoming a life-long learner. The two educators teach with a multi-sensory approach. Alliteration Alphabet models this approach for teaching the letters, their sounds and environmental connections using alliteration. Both educators have utilized Alliteration Alphabet in their classrooms and in the home to promote their own children s development of preliteracy skills. Through this book, they hope to share their knowledge and love of teaching with you and your life-long learners.

As a reading specialist, I commend Taralee and Heather on creating a fun and easy way to teach pre-literacy skills to children. Alliteration Alphabet allows parents and teachers to focus on the key concepts that form the foundation for literacy. This book can be used by parents as a supplement to their child's formal education or can be used by an educator as an engaging primary resource for associating letters to sounds, matching words with pictures, and identifying upper and lower case letters. The potential of Alliteration Alphabet goes beyond the traditional instruction manual, as it encourages curiosity in children to explore additional concepts with the alliteration theme. --Natalie Carrozza - Kindergarten Teacher, Reading Specialist - B.A. and M.A. Rowan University

Alliteration Alphabet by Taralee O Malley-Hurff and Heather Grim is both a fun and appropriate text to be used with pre-emerging readers. This high interest book for early learners provides print awareness, phonological awareness, vocabulary, and narrative skills while providing a platform for letter knowledge in a multisensory format all quality details in promoting early literacy skills! --Kristine Rosenberger, Ed.D. Director of Curriculum and Instruction
