As a teacher, I like making learning the alphabet and phonics easy, fun, and memorable so students of any age can eventually read better. The book uses a unique multi-sensory approach to increase long term memory of alphabet letters that become part of an object that begins with the letter’s sound. The pictures and stories are easy to remember and visualize the direction to write the letters and remember two words that begin with that particular letter’s sound. These unusual and interesting pictures and stories help the memory. All my students benefited from these techniques.

Reviewed by Barbara Fanson for Readers' Favorite The Alphabet: Learned Quickly and Easily is a guide to pronouncing the letters of alphabet, as well as how to draw them. Teacher and author Brenda G. Martin has developed a method for teaching the alphabet that teachers and parents can use to help children learn the letters and the sounds they make. For example, the letter C can sound like a K or S as in cow or cent. And what if you had the letter H after a C; you get a ch sound, as in children. English is not easy to learn when one letter can sound differently. Even the letter G sounds different in the word goat or gee! This book includes short vowels and long vowels like the letter E: egg or eat. Brenda G. Martin is a teacher and has spent her career helping children learn the alphabet so they can learn to read. In this book, Martin shares her experiences of working with children who found learning difficult because of economics, dyslexia, learning disabilities, or required special education. Her book combines auditory, visual, kinesthetic, and memory training to help students and children learn to read. Schools, libraries, and homes can benefit from The Alphabet: Learned Quickly and Easily. If teachers or parents read one letter of the alphabet each day, then children could look for things that start with that letter. They could play a game of I Spy and, together, they can make learning fun.
