Alphabet books are a favorite in our home library. They were a great way to learn the alphabet and now have become a great way to introduce those early learning skills. After several rereadings of alphabet books children can read “A is for…” that appear in most alphabet books.
A recently discovered alphabet book for us is T is for Turkey, by Tanya Lee Stone. This book uses the alphabet to teach children facts about the history of Thanksgiving. We’ve discussed that although Abraham Lincoln is in this book, he wasn’t with the Pilgrims---he was the President who established the first Thanksgiving. There are other examples that will require explanation, but we’ve learned more about Thanksgiving by reading this book.
