Master the Alphabet
The Little Skill Seekers: Alphabet book combines writing practice with fun matching and word games to help children develop important early literacy skills. The book includes pages that focus on each individual letter of the alphabet, with sections for children to first trace the upper and lower case version of the letters, and then practice writing by themselves.
There are also games in which kids pair lowercase letters with their uppercase equivalents. If your child has trouble identifying all of the letters, these exercises will be helpful to do together.
As the book progresses, it asks kids to identify the first letter of simple words, like “panda” and “hippo.” The illustrations are colorful and engaging, and the games get kids thinking about what letters sound like and how words are formed.
