Favorite books: the Alphabet

There are entirely way too many books to recommend, give 5 stars, gush over, love–in just one post. So let this be the beginning of a series of posts that can extol the merits of some of the greatest finds, the perfect fit, and the never-stops-being-amazing books for your classroom.

First up is so hard to pick–the first sets the tone. So let’s start with a list.

I started my career in kindergarten. One of the biggest standards and most critical learning goal: the alphabet–letters, sounds, and vocabulary. So, naturally, I have a long list of alphabet books.

The following are some of my favorite alphabet books:

  • A is for Angry by Sandra Boynton
