Alphabet Anatomy: Meet the Capital Letters

Explore the Art of Learning the Letters and their Lives

ALPHABET ANATOMY looks behind the scenes at the letters …
because they’re not always busy making words.

Are you looking for a fun book to introduce Capital Letters to your child? I was! I wanted to get my son recognizing and learning how to write his Capital Letters but make it fun at the same time!

So when I saw the book Alphabet Anatomy: Meet the Capital Letters, I knew it would be the perfect book for helping my son learn his Capital Letters!

In her debut book, Alphabet Anatomy : Meet the Capital Letters, new author Linda Jones has ingeniously created an innovative personality and activities for each letter by examining the letter’s shape and sound. Jones’ amusing rhyming verses and illustrations provide a glimpse into the letters' lives, while vividly instructing on the four interconnected letter components, including how to write the letter, thus its anatomy. Who knew that letter F is focused on fitness, letter P has a passion for pizza, and letter T builds a totally terrific tree house?!

Alphabet Anatomy also provides children with many additional benefits associated with rhyming, i.e., developing listening and thinking skills, building vocabulary and developing sound discrimination, learning sentence structure and basic memory skills, and developing phonological and phonemic awareness. The rhyming verses create a visual of each letter, so the majority of children who are visual learners can better comprehend the letter concepts.

No longer just abstract shapes, the letters in Alphabet Anatomy have uniquely evolved as a result of their lives, and each letter’s anatomy defines its activities and interests. For instance, letter H has a history of a half-yard height deficit among her hometown friends, which causes her to habitually hop on four-foot high, hickory-wood handmade stilts. With the national drive to improve early childhood education, and the stringent common core standards recently adopted by virtually all the states, Alphabet Anatomy hopes to serve as an effective learning tool to help set a solid foundation for children to attain the proficient reading skills so critical to a successful future.

In Alphabet Anatomy, the letters love to share their lives, and their highest aspiration is that each child who meets them will embrace this wondrous journey, and develop a life-long love for not only reading but writing as well.

This book was colorful, fun and gives children a reason to remember each letter because they each have a personality! :)
