Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I like the concept of offering open-ended projects that apply to teaching the alphabet. This is an excellent outline and offering it in a lesson plan format is a great idea. This would be an excellent tool for new teachers as well as veterans needing a fresh approach." - Heather Fay, ChildTime Children's Centers, Akron, OH
