The Letter a Week Prek program I used with my eldest and am about to start with my second uses Chicka Chicka Boom Boom weekly. I liked the repetition, and every week as he learned new letters I would ask him to ‘read’ that letter. We also have a chicka chicka stand alone tree with velcro letters that we attach each week.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

How fun, Sarah! I especially like the idea of a coconut try with velcro letters.

Sara H.

says:

To be honest, alphabet books are among my least favorite reading; so this post is a good encouragement to me to read them with my daughter anyway.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Sara,
I understand. Alphabet books can be repetitive and boring. Hopefully, however, our selections will be more fun. Personally, *I* never got tired of reading Dr. Seuss’ ABCs. There is so much rhythm and rhyme in that book, that parts of it feels like singing, not reading!

Sarah

says:

I love alphabet books, can’t wait to read A Farmer’s Alphabet

Julie

says:

Great list! Thank you!

Lanie

says:

Great information, my favorite is Dr. Seuss.

Lesley

I have been using All About Series since my son was 4; he’s now 7. I love the flow of the series!

Jessica R.

says:

Thanks for the downloadable list of alphabet books! I definitely will be looking for these books at the library!

My sons also liked the book Alpha Oops. It’s a silly mixed-up alphabet story — a fun read, but it doesn’t introduce the letters in alphabetical order.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Jessica,
Thank you for the recommendation of Alpha Oops. It sounds fun!

Ashley W

says:

These look awesome! Thanks for pulling this together. We love If Rocks Could Sing. I want to check out Farmers Alphabet and Handmade Alphabet :)

My active boy loves Grover’s ABC because he can try to make the letters with his body!

Sherry

says:

Thanks for this post. I’ll definitely download the list. I wonder if Dr Seuss A to Z is on it.

My #1 favorite alphabet book is I Spy Little Letters. I had it in an ABC center in my first grade classroom years ago, and the students all loved it. I kept it in my baby’s book basket when I became a stay-at-home mom, and all three of my boys have loved it. It’s one of my favorite children’s books, and I often give it as a baby shower gift. :)

Ashley Biron

says:

Can’t wait to check out these selections for my little readers!

michelle liotsakis

says:

My favorite picture book is POLO. The pictures lead viewers on an adventure through the eyes of boy. There are no words in this book so pre-readers have as much as fluent readers coming up with their ideas of what the story is about.

michelle liotsakis

says:

That should have read ” as much fun” as fluent readers

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Michelle,
Thanks for the recommendation! We have a blog post on Wordless Picture Books that this book would fit in with.

Ann R

We’re glad to have helped you remember, Tia!

Jennifer H

says:

We recently read and LOVED The Extinct Alphabet Book by Jerry Pallotta. My son picked it because he thought it would be about dinosaurs, which it wasn’t, but it was a great read-aloud nonetheless. My kids, 3-and-a-half and almost five, both enjoyed it.

Robin E.

says: Customer Service

Ooo, thank you for the recommendation, Jennifer. This sounds like it would be extra fun!

Rhonda

The rhyming patterns in these books are perfect for phonemic awareness. They also introduce new words for the letter sounds.

Yes! Thanks for pointing that out, Graeme. Rhyming picture books like these ones are powerful and fun tools for developing phonemic (phonological) awareness, a reading readiness skill necessary for reading success.
