Alphabet Books for Kindergarten

Let’s face it, learning the alphabet is an extremely important milestone in the life of a child. It’s literally the foundation of every bit of education that comes after it. How can we help young children reach this goal – to learn each letter of the alphabet – in a fun way?

Alphabet books are a great way for kindergarten teachers to help students learn the letters of the alphabet. I’m so excited to introduce you to some of my favorite alphabet books to help young readers begin their journey toward reading and writing.

By focusing on this core building block, teachers can set kids up for success, by giving them the most important foundations for language literacy. As a kindergarten teacher, you want to incorporate educational resources that are fun and engaging for your students. One way to do that is through alphabet books. Alphabet books not only make learning how to read and spell enjoyable, but they also foster important literacy skills in young learners. 

Now, I want to share with you a list of alphabet books that are my favorites for teaching kindergarten students! I’ve had some of these books FOR. EVER! BUT they are still just as great as ever.

Alpha Oops! The Day Z Went First –This alphabet adventure is so much fun for kids to read! The pages are filled with bright colors and it’s among my favorite books for helping kids to learn the alphabet!

It asks the question… What if Z went first? It sort of turns into a mess.

There are some interesting images to notice in this picture book. One thing I really love about this book are the little letters along the bottom of the page. As the letters get all mixed up, these letters do as well. In this unique alphabet book, with colorful illustrations, the conversation about what is fair and how to compromise is the main theme. Because of that, this book may even appeal to older children.
