Kylie H has been teaching young children to read and write since she graduated with a Bachelor of Education degree and a Diploma of Teaching in 1996. In this book she shares with you one of her most powerful tools for learning the English alphabet. This book contains her easy-to-remember alphabet song and 26 retro crayon images which link the shape of each letter to a corresponding word.

It’s no accident that children seem to learn the letter ‘s’ very easily - that’s because a snake (which starts with s), can often be drawn in the shape of an ‘s’. Children make this connection, and the shape of the letter becomes memorable to them. In this book, Kylie H has created a letter shape/object pair for each letter, so that children can connect the shape of every letter to something memorable.

Spend 2 or 3 minutes reading or singing this book to your child every day, and in no time at all they will be able to recall each letter name and a corresponding word. In this way, they’ll be well on their way to reading and writing.

Kylie H has used this song and these pictures for the past 18 years with her students, and by spending just 2 or 3 minutes each day singing this song while viewing these pictures, her students made very rapid progress in learning all their letters and sounds. She is now pleased to be able to share this tool with you and your child.

Happy Reading!
