"This book is a must-have resource for any preschool teacher (in the classroom or at home)! The hands-on activities included for each letter make it easy to modify teaching the alphabet for any learner. The appendix alone is overflowing with resources including read aloud books, science activities, and fine motor activities to extend letter learning. I highly recommend The ABC's of Preschool!"

"The ABC's of Preschool renewed my excitement for teaching my second child this coming year. I was stressed out over the additional research it would take to teach two very different boys. Not anymore! Anna has put together a treasure trove of ideas. I am so excited to begin doing letter of the week with my little one!"
