Alphabet Book




This is my "homemade" alphabet book. I got the idea from my sister in law, Amanda, who made something similar for our niece Cambria for Christmas. It's a relatively easy, inexpensive, and fun way to introduce and teach your kids the alphabet. Aidan and Emma have really enjoyed looking at it and Aidan has almost all of his letters memorized--although I can't in good conscience take the credit for that, he's been in pre-school since the end of August. But, for Emma it's a head start on next year when she starts pre-school. If anyone is interested, the website can be found here Project Alphabet. I also made a numbers book, which can also be found on the project alphabet website.

I love the pregnant picture too! I can't wait to see you! Thanks for the great idea for a book, I was just saying I needed a way to start Noah on the alphabet. Hooray for your blog :)

Amanda--I just went online and googled a bunch of words and picked out the images that I liked and downloaded them to my computer in a folder.
