There’s more than just one alphabet song! Everyone knows the one that sounds like “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and “Baa Baa Black Sheep”, both variations of an old French tune. For variety, though, check out the other songs that you can sing with your child.
The ABC Bunny introduced us to a wonderful, foot stamping, tralalalala ABC song. A 1933 book by Newberry Honor Book awardee Wanda Gag, I had thought it would be just another alphabet book. But as all books on the Before Five in a Row booklist, The ABC Bunny managed to engage and please us with the bunny dashing through all letters of the alphabet, the rhythmic words, the magnificent charcoal drawings, and of course the song that somebody kindly recorded and uploaded to You Tube.
APPLE, APPLE A long time ago, I learned a phonics chant from my nephew, which I used to teach Little T the letter sounds. It’s fun and flexible and you can use any word that you want or see around you.
Baby, Baby B-B-B
