ABC~ Alphabet Books & Crafts

I remember when my first born was two year old and sang his ABCs for the first time. I thought he was the smartest kid ever! Now that my third child is two and I’m so busy with all three kiddos, I recently thought to myself, “Oh yeah, I should make sure he knows his ABCs!”.

So, I got this book to help. At the start of each Target grocery shopping trip, we stop by the book section first to grab some good reads for him during the cart ride. I found Alpha Block and loved it. I cannot stop looking at it and neither can he. He will soon be as smart as my firstborn!

B is for Balloons,
C is for Cookies . . .”

This simple board book is the best ABC book I’ve ever read. We LOVE the illustrations and the way the author and illustrator formatted the letters so that most of them could be used as stencils. During our first read, my kids enjoyed guessing what the next letter’s illustration might be and then turning the page to see if they were right. We also like seeing how the letter fits into the pictures on both of the pages it touches. Here are some of our favorite letter pages:
