A great book for so many reasons!
Rhyme is a fantastic way to build vocabulary as it encourages children to learn word families where words have the same ending but different beginnings. Children also get involved in the story and are able to predict what word is coming up next.
I also love this story because the alphabet is written in large font and the repetition of introducing each letter is catchy and engaging for children.
For older children there’s so many follow up activities you could do with this book afterwards. You could make a bumblebee for the letter b, bake some of Jerry Jordan’s jam, create a word list for one of the letters, a poster with cut out pictures/drawings of things that start with a particular letter…the list goes on!
