    With creative drawing and snazzy rhymed sentences.   Each letter

    With creative drawing and snazzy rhymed sentences.   Each letter has a unique word match to it.  While some of the words are simple other are ones rarely used and nice to see them utilized to help kids learn the meanings. 




    I really liked the art in Alphabet Anatomy.  It was done by the author’s son which is a neat bonus I am sure for the partners and readers. 




    Down side that letter X is a pain to rhyme darnit.   I would have preferred to still have made the word associated with it a word beginning with an X, instead of Excited, even if I couldn’t rhyme with it.  I thought it might confuse a child.




    Alphabet Anatomy is a very good children’s picture book with great visual and smart sentences that the kids can have fun and learn at the same time.

    It was the perfect time for my daughter and I to read this book.

    It was the perfect time for my daughter and I to read this book. We've been working on the alphabet a lot recently (she's almost got it down!) so we were really happy to read this. This book makes learning the alphabet fun. The letters are brought to life with very colorful and creative illustrations. Along with each illustration, there is a little rhyme that goes along with it that explains how to write the letters. I think this is very helpful when learning and memorizing. I still remember rhymes that I was taught when I was a youngster. 8x8 is 64, shut your mouth and say no more! ;)



    I think this book is a really fun tool to use if you're working with a child on learning or writing the letters of the alphabet. Get your kids excited about learning! We are waiting to meet the lowercase letters now!

    Entertaining & Educational

    Teaching youngsters the alphabet should be a fun experience for them and you as well. Author Linda Ann Jones assists in that task with her book, Meet The Capital Letters, the first installment in her Alphabet Anatomy series. Bringing the letters to life are the charming illustrations by Branson Jones, teenage son of the author. Youngsters will delight in the quirky drawings. They will be laughing their way through the alphabet as they learn. The author has used rhyming verses with each illustration to help youngsters better recognize the letter. In addition, youngsters are aided in how to write each letter through its anatomy. An example: ‘F, fit and fine, both arms straight to the right,….’ Meet The Capital Letters is a fun way to teach youngsters letter identification. It will also prove to be an entertaining way to encourage youngsters to learn writing without it seeming like a chore. This will be a useful addition to a youngster’s library and prepare them for the next installment, Meet The Lower Case Letters. FTC Full Disclosure - I requested this book as part of a promotion and it was sent to me by the author in hopes I would review it. However, receiving the complimentary copy did not influence my review.

    In this picture book the alphabet comes alive with colorful char

    In this picture book the alphabet comes alive with colorful characters with great personalities, style and fun in a rhyming tale of ABCs.  The illustrations are bold and colorful and depict each and every letter in the alphabet. 




    This is one lively bunch of letters.
      
     L is a little soldier with combat boots and a helmet!  Very patriotic!  




     M is a mountain and he has snow caps. Oh, so Cool!




    What a wonderful adventure into the Anatomy of the Alphabet!  FUN! FUN! FUN!




    The child will learn letter recognition, name, sound knowledge and  writing ability.




    On the back cover of the book is the four core elements:
    Phonological awareness;
    Letter identification;
    Vocabulary development;
    Recall and retell sentences and stories.




    I highly recommend this book to teachers, parents, grandparents as an educational tool.  




    Disclosure:  I received a free copy of this book from the author/Bostick Communications for review.  I was in no way compensated for this review.  It is my honest opinion.

    I actually wish I had found this book while my children were





    I actually wish I had found this book while my children were younger.  It turns the alphabet learning lessons into a fun, creative way at looking at each letter.  I have no doubt this book would have helped our son learn his alphabet with less stress.  He has developmental disabilities and achieves his best learning through creative and artistic means - this book totally fits the bill.  This would be a great addition to any preschool/kindergarten classroom.  As an example - H Happily hops on 2 stilts, tall and straight.  She holds on in the middle and has a strange gait.  This book is an excellent example of creative and imaginative teaching methods.  5 stars.




    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
