Recognizing letters is important because it allows children to understand the relationship between oral and written language. This is the foundation for basic skills like reading and writing, and if it's fun to start with, it will be easier to continue. In other words, recognizing the letters will be the beginning of good mental development and this must be encouraged. Alphabet Anatomy Meet the Lower Case Letters is the right book to begin this task. Linda Ann Jones teaches the shape of the letters with rhymes and words, while the shape of the strokes is explained. Near each letter is its uppercase version, so that children can visually recognize the difference and understand that they are the same sound.
The rhymes are amusing and incorporate a lot of information, including a description of the shape of the letter and a word that it represents. I liked Alphabet Anatomy Meet the Lower Case Letters because it considers children's needs. The book was created to make learning a game, the colors are bright, the shapes interesting and the descriptions harmonious. Children will learn to recognize letters quickly. Linda Ann Jones has written a very practical and useful guide for teaching. At the end, there is a section with suggestions for games to motivate children into participating in letter activities. That final part delighted me because the author shared additional advice and shows her interest in wanting to help children develop.
