Whether you are looking for a fun new book to share together or want to enrich your reader’s homeschool curriculum, choosing a book that features a letter in the alphabet is a great place to start. Recognizing the letters in the alphabet is one of the first steps to growing accomplished readers. Once your reader can recognize the letters it is much easier for them to learn the sounds of the letters and build words.  Excited about exploring the alphabet?
