From the Author:

*IMPORTANT NOTE FOR DIGITAL USERS* DOUBLE TAP THE TABLET SCREEN ON THE PAGE YOU WANT TO TRACE. WHEN YOU DOUBLE TAP THE PAGE ON YOUR DEVICE, THE IMAGE WILL ENLARGE AND FREEZE, SO YOUR CHILD CAN TRACE THE LETTER.
Hello! My husband and I hope you love this fun and innovative alphabet book! In our new book, children get to be part of the action, as they finger trace the letter "adventures" and associate the sounds the letter makes while hearing a memorable story. It's so colorful and funny, with unforgettable characters, rhyming, and alliteration. 

The idea for this book came about when I was teaching my youngest son at age four the sounds of the alphabet and how to trace the letters. To trace the lowercase letters, I used a baking pan filled with sand and asked my son to trace the letters with his finger. To help him remember how to trace the letters, I used the same technique that I had formerly used when teaching my students. I created silly stories where a character would do an action (or a series of actions), forming the shape of a letter. This teaching strategy really worked for my son, because he started making a connection between the story and the letter associated with that story.
We hope you and your little one(s) enjoy reading this story and learning the alphabet as much as we enjoyed creating it!

By emphasizing and repeating the target letter sound several times, your little learner will begin to understand the corresponding letter sound by simply listening to and enjoying the stories!It is important to mention that we carefully selected our alliterative words to try and avoid inconsistent usage of short and long vowel sounds, vowel pairs or digraphs (ai, ea, etc. ), and diphthongs (ow, ou, etc. ). For example: For the letter a we used words like acrobat and at instead of air. For the letter e we used words like elephant and elf instead of eat. For the letter i, we used words like icky and ink instead of ice. For the letter o, we used words like octopus and officer instead of owl. For the letter u, we used words like umbrella and up instead of unicorn. We also made a concerted effort to avoid inconsistencies with hard and soft consonant sounds and with consonant digraphs (ch, sh, etc. ). For example: For the letter g we used words like gorilla and girl instead of giraffe. For the letter c, we used words like captain and cup instead of chocolate. For the letter s, we used words like soapy and super instead of shoe. Additionally, for the letter x, we used the word x-ray instead of xylophone. The word xylophone has a z sound, which confuses children who are learning to associate the eks phonetic sound with the letter x.
