We never really sat down and taught Caroline her ABC’s. It just happened naturally over time because we provided lots of interesting materials for her to use such as the Baby Einstein Alphabooks.
So while we did do lots of things to provide learning materials and engaged with her about print and books, she was mostly self-taught when it came to learning her letters.
Baby Einstein Alphabooks
I originally saw these Baby Einstein Alphabooks when I was pregnant and I thought they were the cutest things. I love little books in boxes so this was right up my alley.
I didn’t buy them until after Caroline was born, but they were a great purchase. She has used them time and time again. We’ve probably had them well over a year and a half and she still regularly sits down and goes through them.
There is a little board book for each letter of the alphabet. Each book has three words and a related photograph, work of art, or graphic. They have also been a great vocabulary tool as we’ve talked about what was in each of the pictures.
I think part of the appeal is the size. Part of the appeal is the number of them. And part of the appeal is also that they fit into a cute container that she can carry around. The combination is just perfect!
Cute, compact, and clever. Just what I like! Highly recommended!
