To Robert Fallon, the most important factor of The Alphabets and Friends is to provide a fun and creative way to learn the alphabet, and how to read and write. He has achieved this by creating cartoon alphabet characters which have been drawn in a manner that does not detract from the form of the letters, even with their exciting added features.
For each of the 37 characters in The Alphabets and Friends, Fallon has created an accompanying rhyme. Each one is designed to appeal to the parents, who will inevitably have to read this book to their little ones hundreds of times, as well as the children who will learn from them.
Whether it’s Linda Itsy Bitsy in a daydream, who walks into a lamppost and drops her ice cream, or Nil, who does his sums by counting on his fingers nose and thumbs, children and adults will enjoy every letter of the alphabet and more with this new ebook. They can even progress to the more difficult Roof Tops rhymes, where Tile has a mucky face covered in bird droppings and Ridge is far from pleased.
The Alphabets and Friends will help children to become aware of the sequence of the alphabet letters through a chart, individual characters and rhymes. The book also gives them scope to get creative in other ways, such as drawing.
