This is an animal alphabet book that does not teach the alphabet in isolation but gives the child the opportunity to learn to read. This book is intentional in preparing the kindergarten child for the first grade. The focus is on learning the alphabet, building vocabulary, and reading skills. The beginning kindergarten child's focus is on learning the alphabet, but by the end of the second nine weeks of school, children will be doing much more than the alphabet. They will be reading sight words and CVC words. CVC words are three-letter words, such as run, man, top. The goal of this book is to make learning to read fun for the young child.
