The alphabet book has become a ubiquitous teaching resource. What classroom can carry on without book talks or read-alouds?
History, art, music, math, science and sports topics have made for brilliant versions of the abecedary that serve as appealing reference materials for learning content. Think Eating the Alphabet by Lois Ehlert (Harcourt Children’s Books, 1989) and the connections it might generate in a unit on botany or world cultures.
Considering the popularity of regionally themed alphabet books like L is for Lone Star from Sleeping Bear Press, independent publisher Craigmore Creations hoped to bring engaging educational materials about natural history to readers.
