Joy of Literacy

Here's How It Works

Each poster and matching storybook represent a letter of the alphabet
connected to a unique character using rhythm, rhyme and gentle humor.

Each story is only four sentences long and has a clear beginning, middle and end.


Child-friendly format includes generous spacing, large print and age-appropriate font to support development of concepts of print.
Repetition of high-frequency words helps students build sight vocabulary. Colorful illustrations and images perfectly support the story.
