A Rhyme for each Letter!


Are you looking for a fun, simple, and inexpensive way to teach your child the alphabet and letter knowledge?  We’re so glad you stopped by!


In Alphabet Anatomy, the letters have come to life based upon their distinct graphic features, and entertain children as they reveal what they do when they’re not busy with their main job of making words.


A short humorous rhyme for each letter presents a visual and auditory picture of each letter’s sound, shape, and print formation, so learning the alphabet, and fundamental letter components, is effortless, painless, and fun!  Read more about how Alphabet Anatomy is different here: what’s unique about alphabet anatomy


Meet Letter A!




“A has a point at the top of her head.  Under her belt, she hides apples so red.  A – Apples”


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 suggest 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.

 The letters had so much fun making their first video, the Alphabet Anatomy Rap!  


Teaching your child how to write the letters can be especially frustrating, but not with Alphabet Anatomy.  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, 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.

Discovering Alphabet Anatomy’s letters and exploring their lives presents a vast array of additional early literacy opportunities to engage your child, including relating their own real life experiences to the letters’ activities and teaching positive character traits.  See what these letters are up to: visit some letters.


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”


With just a little imagination, it’s easy to engage in additional early literacy activities and conversations by exploring the letters’ lives.  For instance, letter F will even help kids focus on feeling fit and fabulous: fabulously fit letter F.


Letter C demonstrates compassion as she cares for cats.




“C is a circle that doesn’t quite close.  Her right side stays open where cats like to doze.  C – Cats”


Did you know your child’s early literacy journey begins at the moment of birth?  That means you can start reciting Alphabet Anatomy’s rhymes to infants up to kindergarteners and beyond depending on their level of letter mastery.  Read more about early literacy here:  understanding early literacy.
