Alphabetown USA is a series of children’s books that teach letter recognition, word formations and also a little bit of life’s wonderful lessons along the way. The series of books is written by a family and their story is so beautiful, it really warms your heart.
In January 2008 while Ryan was out of work due to an injury to his arm, Ryan began writing a novel that had been on his mind for many years. Our three inquisitive daughters could not help but be over his shoulder asking what he was doing several times per hour. After much persistence, Ryan explained that he was writing a book. Our oldest daughter, Hannah, decided that she wanted to write a book! The other girls squealed and jumped up and down, excited to write a real book. We went over the basics: Who will be your characters? What will they do? Where will the story take place? We all worked on the story together as a family. – read more
Together the family created Alphabetown, with all it’s characters, stories and entertainment because a little girl wanted to start a story.
We received Hannah’s Homework, a book that teaches young ones their vowels, the sounds and letter/word recognition while reading the story about how Hannah’s friends help her through a difficult school assignment.
It’s a really beautiful book. The characters give a fun twist to the alphabet that our children are already learning for early education / preschool. The stories fit alongside the age group (2-8) and are great learning lessons, especially for pre-school!
Each letter has it’s own story and it’s own lesson program. You can pick your favorites or go one by one through the Alphabet with your child, deepening the lessons learned regarding how words are formed as well as recognition of them. Plus, they’re really fun and cute! Seeing as how these stories were created from the idea of a little girl, they’re really appealing to young ones.
I’m a huge supporter of early education and books for children, these are absolutely wonderful books for teaching, especially if you are Home-Schooling this year. Take a moment and check out all the other quirky characters in Alphabetown USA!
Purchase: You can purchase Alphabetown USA books on their website. Also, a portion of the proceeds from the retail sale of each book entitled “Were Is Ziggy?” will be donated to our first charity, Alex’s Lemonade Stand!
In 2000, a 4 year old cancer patient named Alexandra “Alex” Scott announced a seemingly simple idea -she was holding a lemonade stand to raise money to help “her doctors” find a cure for kids with cancer. The idea was put into action by Alex and her older brother, Patrick, when they set up the first “Alex’s Lemonade Stand for Childhood Cancer” on their front lawn in July of 2000.
A portion of all proceeds from Hannah’s Homework goes to the Ronald McDonald House of New Jersey. Each book has it’s own charity, you can choose how you make a difference!
