Review: Alphabetter

An alphabet book with a difference, Alphabetter is here to teach you more than just your letters. 

It’s a book to inspire and support you, providing 26 ways to be the best you.

Like being friendly (the word for the letter F), which the book goes on to describe as sharing and being kind, like when you team up with someone new in class.

The beautiful descriptions are relatable and real for kids, and there’s one for every letter and word.

Under each of the featured words are a couple of alternative words, to help kids understand what they mean. Brave is also called being courageous and fearless. Joyful is also called cheerful and jolly.

There’s also a question prompt at the bottom of each page to get kids thinking and talking. Questions like…

What does being loyal mean to you?

What are you proud of?

With gorgeous colourful illustrations to guide your journey through each positive quality, the book is oh-so-fun and joyful.

This is a great book for families and classrooms to explore together. It will spark some wonderful chatting, thinking and doing.
