Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"When creative process meets the ABC's, you know it's a winner! I recommend this excellent book as must-have resource for anyone who works with-and loves-kids! “- MaryAnn F. Kohl, award - winning author of Preschool Art, First Art, and Great Artists

"So often I think that teachers resist using art materials for activities other than open-ended art. Art Across the Alphabet broadens the use of art materials. It so nicely blends all these materials on the art shelf with a wide variety of alphabet activities. Thus children are able to use the art materials to learn new language skills such as alphabet recognition, sounds, and sequence. My favorite part is the ongoing ALPHABET GALLERY. I can just see children having so much fun decorating each giant letter with different art materials and then hanging it in the special ALPHABET GALLERY. I encourage everyone to do it!" - Liz Wilmes, author of Parachute Play, The Circle Time Book, and the 2's Experience Series
