Learning the alphabet is the first step that a child takes in learning to read and write. Having mastered this, children will communicate better and will be able to convey their ideas more clearly. With My Friends From A to Z: A Fun Way to Learn the Alphabet, children can have that great start, because they will see the alphabet in both upper and lower case. They will also see names of people, verbs, and objects in simple sentences. The book uses examples that include fruits, toys, animals, and other objects that will be familiar to children. Marcela Klinsrisuk has created a book dedicated to children's learning that also conveys a feeling of friendship.
My Friends From A to Z includes comprehensive material for teaching the alphabet and I liked the creativity it shows. Each page teaches a different activity such as walking, running, or eating. These are things that children do frequently and that can be easily related to the images. In each image, a different boy or girl is pictured, but they all show friendship and joy. All of the designs are well presented. Another detail that attracted me was that at the end of the book, Marcela Klinsrisuk summarizes the vocabulary in boxes, where the letters appear in uppercase and lowercase, accompanied by an image and a keyword so that children can review seeing only one page and can then create their examples. This book is a fun way to learn the alphabet.
