What other people say about Alphabet Anatomy:

 

It’s a spectacular tool for parents, teachers, and school environments…

“A fun and ingenious way to teach the alphabet….  This is a fine educational tool as well as a well-illustrated book kids will love.”  Grady Harp, Top 50 Amazon Reviewer – Amazon: Grady Harp

 

“Alphabet Anatomy is like a technical manual for writing the letters of the alphabet and can be used in preschool and kindergarten classrooms as a learning tool.  Teachers and parents can use this book to teach phonic awareness, letter identification, and early writing skills to help kids understand the basic structure of letter formation.  Alphabet Anatomy is kid-friendly and delightful.  It’s a fun book, but while having fun, the book will help ground your preschooler in basic letter writing and letter identification.”  Dawnette Rhoomes, Examiner.com – examiner.com: Alphabet Anatomy

 

“As a preschool teacher I am always looking for ways for my students to develop pre-writing and writing skills. Because of the newer demands of kindergarten, children are pretty much required to know how to already write by the time they step foot into their kindergarten classroom. Alphabet Anatomy shows children how to write each letter…. These instructions give children a way to visually remember how to write each letter and states what sound each letter states.  I am very much looking forward to using this book in my classroom. The pictures and the fun descriptions of each letter will even cause the not so eager writer to want to try to make each letter. I think that this is a necessary addition to all preschool books shelves! Even lower elementary classrooms will benefit from this book.”  Amazon/Alphabet Anatomy/Preschool

 

“The wonderful rhyming descriptions explain how to draw the letters, gives a word to help remember the letter. As a teacher who started out teaching kindergarten I can definitely see the value in having this book on your shelf.  If I was teaching kindergarten today I would project one letter at a time, read the rhyme and have the students practice drawing the letter.  I think this should be on every kindergarten classroom shelf.”  Amazon/Alphabet Anatomy/Kindergarten

 

“Alphabet Anatomy will delight most preschoolers or early kindergarteners. Its large 8 1/2″ x 11″ full color pages are sure to bring a smile to your child’s face.”  theeducationcafe.not-just-another-alphabet-book/

 

“Advisable for school libraries.”  kissthebook.blogspot.com/Alphabet Anatomy

 

“This is a book that truly opens up discussions on many levels for each letter…  I immediately thought of his Daycare preschool class as they spend an entire week on one letter and they could start ‘class’ reading that letter’s anatomy….  Truly engages your preschooler  in the identification of letters — the first step to reading!”

 

“I read it once in my Kindergarten classroom and the children have not stopped talking about it.”

 

“A must for anyone with small children just learning their letters.  School systems could also use this as a tool.”  MyBookAddictionandMore –  Amazon/Alphabet Anatomy/mybookaddiction

 

It facilitates the development of reading proficiency…

“Best Book Ever on the Alphabet: As a learning expert, I’ve read many books on learning the alphabet, but this is by far the very best.  Alphabet Anatomy is unlike any other alphabet book I’ve seen. The illustrations and verses are so fun and engaging. This book presents a fabulous and very effective method for preschoolers to learn their letters, plus children will reap all the additional benefits of rhyming.”  Pat Wyman, Founder, howtolearn.com

 

“A great tool for language learning at the phonological level, Alphabet Anatomy: Meet the Capital Letters provides a unique way for children to build reading and writing skills. Take note preschool teachers, this book would serve as a useful tool to introduce the letter of the week!”  Sherry Artimenko, M.A., C.C.C. – playonwords.com/award/alphabet-anatomy

 

“I recommend this book and believe it will be a building block in your child’s development of learning.”

 

“Well, Linda Jones has taken the joyful task of teaching children the letters by creatively giving personality, shape, rhyme, and meaning to each letter.”

 

It grants parents an effective teaching tool for their children…

“I highly recommend this book to teachers, parents, grandparents as an educational tool.”  Patricia Blackmon – Amazon/Blackmon/alphabet anatomy

 

“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 than 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!”  betweenthelinesandmore.blogspot.com/alphabet-anatomy

“Bringing the letters to life are the charming illustrations by Branson Jones, teenage son of the author. Youngsters will delight in the quirky drawings. They will be laughing their way through the alphabet as they learn….  Meet The Capital Letters is a fun way to teach youngsters letter identification. It will also prove to be an entertaining way to encourage youngsters to learn writing without it seeming like a chore.”  masoncanyon.blogspot.com/alphabet anatomy

It’s a joy for bilingual learners…

“ALPHABET ANATOMY is hereby recommended for the whole bilingual family to learn together how to form the capital letters of the alphabet.  The poetry and art combined make a difference in the world of children’s literature because it provides a lesson for learning together that can be fun.  You can use this preschool picture book to learn how to write and read the English Language with your children….  This is a very special preschool ABC picture book.”  Maryann Scheufele, Family Literacy Advocate/English Teacher/Children’s Book Examiner

 

Children adore its content…

“Right now my mom and I are working on learning the different sounds and how to write the letters in the alphabet so this book was a fun helping tool for me.”  Jace Sanders (age 4).  “This book brings back those wonderful memories and helps establish that same attitude with my kids as I had when I was younger.  It is so much fun to personify objects (in this case the basis of our language) into loveable characters we can relate to and laugh at; but most importantly enjoy and learn from.”  Amy Sanders – superreadingkids.blogspot.com/alphabet-anatomy

 

“When we finished reading it that second night, he asked me to immediately read it again!  He was totally loving it and when we went through it the third time, he was able to recognize even more letters and tell me what they were associated with (like that the letter D was for dive as he traced the letter D with his finger showing how you climb up the ladder and then dive down and around).”  lifeasleels.com/alphabet-anatomy
