A Simple Way to Teach the Alphabet!
Teach your child how to read AND write the alphabet letters.
A Rhyme for each Letter Makes it Easy and Fun!
Children learn best through play, and rhyming is a powerful way to facilitate and build important literacy skills in a playful manner.
Did you know that your child’s early literacy journey begins at the moment of birth? There are many ways that parents can encourage and grow a literacy rich environment to maximize the birth through age 5 years when the brain experiences the most rapid growth.
Alphabet recognition and letter knowledge are among the strongest predictors of reading proficiency. Our rhymes can help ensure that your child acquires and retains these important skills. Recite them with younger children during play and games to facilitate letter recognition skills. Use them as a valuable tool for more structured teaching of reading and writing skills.
Each capital and lower case letter rhyme presents a visual and auditory picture of the letter’s sound, shape, and print formation, so mastering the alphabet and letter knowledge is effortless, portable, and FUN!
Meet Letter A!
“A has a point at the top of her head.
Under her belt, she hides apples so red.
A – Apples”

One of the best things parents can do to establish a solid early literacy foundation is to set aside a minimum of 15 minutes per day of reading time. And, Alphabet Anatomy’s busy, lovable letters easily facilitate engaging conversations, which help to greatly boost the benefits of reading aloud.
A major difficulty children face in learning the alphabet and learning to read and write is that letters are abstract and there is nothing inherent in the visual symbols that suggests their names or sounds. By personifying the letters according to their shape and distinctive graphic features, Alphabet Anatomy helps to break down that barrier, plus children gain the multitude of benefits that rhyming provides, including critical thinking and memory skills, phonetic awareness, sound discrimination, and increased vocabulary.
Learning how to write the alphabet letters can be especially frustrating, for kids and adults. In addition to providing an easy means for visual and auditory recall of each letter’s sound and shape, the rhymes uniquely present insight on the handwriting strokes required to correctly form each letter. For instance, when reciting letter A’s rhyme (as seen above), your child will know to make a point at the top (her head) and another handwriting stroke across the middle (her belt) in order to properly form letter A. Reading and writing knowledge occur simultaneously and inter-relatedly.
Letter B invites you to his barbeque!
“B is my buddy. He’s 2 bellies fat
from eating big burgers all day as he sat.
B – Burgers”
You can also use the letters to introduce good character traits and examples of a healthy lifestyle, more opportunities for engaging your child in literacy rich conversations and activities. For instance, letter F helps kids focus on feeling fit and fabulous: letter F. Letter C demonstrates compassion as she cares for cats. Want to meet some more letters?
“C is a circle that doesn’t quite close.
Her right side stays open where cats like to doze.
C – Cats”
