What do you believe is a great way to help a child learn the alphabet? One way is through word association. Word association is taking a word and creating something to match that word which will make it memorable. In Verbuggin,’ Sam Bowyer has created an educational, fun children's book about learning the alphabet. Children will learn not only the alphabet, but use word association to help them remember that letter of the alphabet. In Verbuggin,’ children will meet animal characters such as Quincy the quail, Nina the newt, and Tina the turtle. As children begin to read about each animal represented, they will learn about verbs, which dictate various forms of action, and they will see a message earlier that will help the child learn about the elements that create and establish character.

Verbuggin’ by Sam Bowyer was fun to read. I liked the teaching elements that Sam Bowyer provided. As for Tina the turtle who talked and talked, Sam Bowyer describes the characteristics of a talker and at the end the message was: "Always be honest, never tell a lie." In reading Verbuggin,’ not only are children becoming educated and learning the alphabet, but they are also learning important lessons about character development. Each story will keep your children laughing as they read the silly, quirky short messages about the various animals, from the giraffe and rhino to the wolf. For the child that likes to mix up their reading adventure, purchase Verbuggin’ by Sam Bowyer.
