Deborah Ekkermeyer, Judy Hechtman and Sandra Ford Grove believe that reading poems aloud is a sure fire way of delighting and instructing young children. They have selected poems that link to specific alphabet letter sounds. Awareness of rhyme is encouraged and ideas for games are also included. Simple black and white pictures can be photocopied and cut out to make some of the games suggested.
