5 Stars: "Learning is Fun"
Recently I have been teaching my son English his first language is Chinese making communication sometimes hard, with my limited Chinese I am always on the hunt for teaching materials and books to introduce my son to language and education, colorful and connecting that will get him to open up his Kindle and read something that he can enjoy.
That brings me to a beautifully illustrated ebook ( also available in paperback) ABC in action: Children's alphabet book. Teach toddlers, preschool & kindergarten kids the ABC's and letter phrases. (Fundamentals series Book 6) by Maria Yiangou. Maria's book is excellent for beginners, teaching upper and lower case ABC's with stand out illustrations to teach action words for better retention. I enjoyed watching my son mimic the actions so much that I took my Kindle to my school where I teach Middle school and went to the first floor to a preschool class and the children there entirely listened as I read it to them and got the youngsters to chant the phases in the book. Maria Yiangou's philosophy is "learning is fun" I agree, I wish there were a book like this for me to learn Chinese.
Maria Yiangou has authored and illustrated other educational books I highly suggest that you check out her Amazon page, my son loves anything that has to do with shapes, I will be sending him "My shapes book: Learn 2D & 3D", thank you, Maria, from my son and me.
