From the Author:
“I wrote Animals All Around: An Alphabet and A Note for Parents with my Kindergarten students in mind. I designed around twenty-six interesting, familiar, and unfamiliar animals.
The first part of the book is for children. It allows them to learn and identify Uppercase and Lowercase letters. During the process, the child also learned about twenty-six animals, their habitat, eating habits, and lifestyles. In addition, it is a resource for parents and teachers.
I wrote the second part of the book for parents. It reiterates that educators and researchers have agreed that Alphabet knowledge is one of the strongest predictors of reading success during Kindergarten and into the First Grade. It reminds parents how significant their involvement is in their children’s education. They should include the Alphabet when choosing materials for their young children to use at home.”
