Learning Letters and Rhyming Words by Eric and Jo Rain is a cute and simplistic alphabet rhyme to make learning fun.  Each page has a child-like style crayon drawing of an animal or plant beginning with (or containing) a letter of the alphabet and a verse underneath which rhymes with the verse on the facing page.  I’m not explaining this very well, but here’s a few scans to give you an idea of what I mean:

 The opened book didn’t fit on the scanner (plus I scanned them in ‘illustration mode’ so the grey stripe down the middle is just shadow) but I think you can get the idea with these 🙂

It’s a really fun way to introduce young children to the alphabet and how words look and sound, and they’ve chosen a font which draws the letter ‘a’ as children would write it, sans serif.  And it inspires delight in the plants and animals it describes.

Plus at the end of the book is an alphabet learning game to cut out and play:

A lovely fun way to learn the alphabet 🙂
