The Best Alphabet Books for Kids
This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.
In the precious early learning years, my kids and I explored colors, shapes, numbers, and letters through life experiences and quality literature. Our preschool curriculum was centered around a letter of the week, and we did lots of themed activities around each one.
In addition to learning to recognize letters by sight, my kids enjoyed writing them on a slate board, a magna doodle board, and even using their fingers to trace them in shaving cream on a baking pan, or in a tray of sand–exploring letters in multiple ways. Of course, story time usually included an alphabet book or two during these weeks, and some of our favorites were read over and over again.
On our list below are books we have read often. If you have any suggestions for us, we’d love to hear from you!
