The Alphabet is a large format, full color book, suitable for children from late kindergarten to grade three--and for teachers or homeschoolers seeking to enrich the art of teaching children a more engaging, lively approach to learning to write letters.
Whether your child knows their alphabet or not, Pine Cone and Pepper Pot guarantee they will see the letters and their shapes with new and creative eyes, both on the pages and in the world around them. The Alphabet is filled with stories, songs, pictures, plays and adventures, silly and bold.
~Staff Favorite: Such a great book for helping kids be more aware and engaged in learning letters. Each activity Tom and June Berry do, kids can do too.
From the Author:
Summer is almost over and Tom Nutcracker is soon to go to school. But deep in the forest on his father's farm two gnomes called Pine Cone and Pepper Pot are worried. What if the school does not teach Tom his letters properly? What if the teacher messes the alphabet up? Then Tom might spell Pine Cone as NEPI NOEC, or Pepper Pot as PREPREP TOP. That would be a disaster. So the two gnomes, with the help of Tiptoes Lightly and Farmer John, set out to teach Tom his letters. Tom's younger sister, June Berry, insists on being taught too, and never will they, or anyone else who reads this tale, forget their ABC's—or their LMNOP's or QRST's either.
Highly recommended by the teachers here at Alder & Alouette!
