This 26 page paper bound picture book from a poetic mother and her artistic 16 yr. old son who together with another artist created the unique picture book for preschoolers. Letters of the alphabet may be formed in a unique way as they have been given their own description of anatomical parts. The book is, for the sake of learning, another way to view the alphabet - and for any preschooler this is always helpful. Each letter of the alphabet is presented as a capital letter and rather than focusing on phonetics, has a poem associated with the shape of the letter. 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. If you try together, you will learn together in a fun way.
The picture book is written by a poet and has simple illustrations. Typical ABC picture books build vocabulary according to phonetics, however the poetry of this picture book builds a vocabulary of more nontraditional words as spoken by the poetry reading narrator to the preschooler. The mother and son who created ALPHABET ANATOMY MEET THE CAPITAL LETTERS used poetry written that is relative to real life situations focused upon achieving. This fun to learn from atmosphere makes reading together a discovery rather than learning by phonetics. The alphabet Illustrations divide each capital letter into parts that function according to descriptions revealed within the poetry.
Family Literacy advocates may notice the description of how to make each capital letter may be somewhat similar to a concept in Asian languages which focus upon the descriptive drawing of each character used in their language. For good reason, ALPHABET ANATOMY MEET THE CAPITAL LETTERS shows readers that giving the English Language alphabet anatomical structure divided into parts and positioned in relation the function of each part, may help the whole family focus on learning the alphabet together. This is a very special preschool ABC picture book.
