Take an exciting journey into learning as Kate and Jake enter Alphabet Land, where they are introduced to the names and sounds of all the letters. This unique book uses a variety of educational approaches, including cartoon images that show the shape of the mouth when saying the names of the letters and making their sounds. Children also meet diphthongs and upper and lowercase letters.
Visually appealing and delightfully imaginative, Adventure in Alphabet Land will make a valuable addition to every home and school library.
