16 Favorite Alphabet Books for Preschoolers


To rewind a bit, this past Tot School year was more for exposure as we cycled through the alphabet doing various activities and/or crafts based around a certain letter.   In August/ September, Little Sis will be 3 1/2, so I'd like to transition her to more preschool type activities come Fall.

We most likely will cycle through the alphabet again, but I'd like to focus on weekly themes, instead of  a certain letter.

Along with weekly themes, I would like to dedicate a basket and/or bin specific to a letter.

The idea right now is to fill the bin with some manipulatives of that letter, tiny objects, and an alphabet book.

I am still trying to figure things out, but as I am reflecting on what we have done and where we want to go, I thought it would be fun to share with you our collection of Alphabet books.

    My daughter is a big Fancy Nancy fan, so I had to add that to our collection! The Richard Scarry one is very cute and perfect for tiny hands! Literally it's probably as big as my 2 year old's hands.
