Page Length:32
ISBN-10: 1460200470 

About The Book:
Alphabet Anatomy's innovative rhyming verses and unique illustrations instruct on letter sound, recognition, AND how to write the letter, thus its anatomy. Thoroughly entertaining, each letter's heartwarming personality and characteristics will engage and delight children as they discover what the letters do behind the scenes when they're not busy making words. The letters know that the journey to reading is inherently complex, and mastery of these essential skills is absolutely vital for future success. In Alphabet Anatomy, the letters love to share their lives, and their highest aspiration is that each child who meets them will embrace this wondrous journey, and develop a life-long love for not only reading but writing as well. Alphabet Anatomy teaches full understanding of the alphabet, that is, the four inter-connected components: 1. Letter shape knowledge or recognition; 2. Letter name knowledge; 3. Letter sound knowledge; 4. Letter writing ability. In addition, Alphabet Anatomy utilizes the four core elements which extensive research has proven effectively teach reading and provide a solid and effective foundation for proficient reading in later years: 1. Phonological awareness; 2. Letter identification; 3. Vocabulary development; 4. Recall and retell sentences and stories. Soon to come: Meet The Lower Case Letters

Breeze's Review (Between The Pages Guest Reviewer)

I really enjoyed reading this with my daughter. I know there are a lot of books out there that are targeted to teaching the letters of the alphabet but this one was creative enough to stand out to me. Each rhyme that went with each letter was unique and it seems to tell a different story behind each letter then what we normally hear. By far my favorite part of the book was the illustrations. No doubt a lot of creativity went into making these letters come alive and to capture the attention of young children. Great job!
