It’s no secret that reading leads to success, so naturally, parents want to raise readers. Did you know that reading begins by learning the alphabet? It’s true!

According to Reading Rockets, “Children's knowledge of letter names and shapes is a strong predictor of their success in learning to read. […] Children cannot understand and apply the alphabetic principle (understanding that there are systematic and predictable relationships between written letters and spoken sounds) until they can recognize and name a number of letters.”

This means that in addition to singing the alphabet song, kids need to learn to recognize letters. Just because they can sing A-B-C-D-E-F-G, it doesn’t mean they can identify those letters in print.

Fortunately, there are many ways parents can help their kids learn the alphabet and start their reading journey, such as reading NAMEE’s personalized ABC book.

Yes, there are tons of ABC books available, but NAMEE’s personalized alphabet book is truly one-of-a-kind. It makes children the heroes of their own stories and empowers them to learn each letter of the alphabet.

Check out three ways that NAMEE’s personalized ABC book teaches kids their letters.

1. Memorable Illustrations in Personalized ABC Book

In NAMEE’s personalized ABC book, there are beautiful, creative illustrations that correspond to word that starts with that letter of the alphabet. For example, the story “I is for Ice” has a vivid illustration of a child skating on ice in a winter scene. It captures the look and feel of ice, which will make it easier for children to remember.

And don’t forget! NAMEE’s personalized books also allow you to choose the look features of the hero of the story, so your child will see herself on the ice! What is more memorable than that?!

ABC illustrations were made by one of our talented illustrators - John Ortiz.

2. Easy Letter Recognition For Learning Alphabet

To begin reading, children must learn to recognize letter names, letter shapes, and then, letter sounds. While children learn the names of the ABCs with songs, books like NAMEE’s alphabet book teach them to recognize letter shapes.

What makes NAMEE’s personalized alphabet book different in letter recognition from other books is that it includes both upper case and lower case examples of letter shapes.

Additionally, the big, bold font of the letter and corresponding word helps children learn the difference between a word and a letter, a skill that is necessary for children to learn that letters are put together to form words.

3. Personalized ABC Stories

The main way NAMEE’s personalized ABC Book teaches kids their letters is by telling them fun stories! Each letter of the alphabet focuses on a key object starting with that letter, such as “J is for Juice.” But the fun doesn’t stop there! Unlike other alphabet books, NAMEE’s personalized ABC book doesn’t simply say, “J is for Juice.” Each letter gets an entire rhyming story focusing on the letter’s object! This makes learning letters much easier as children remember playful, creative stories.

Then, there is the icing on the cake – the stories are personalized to include your son or daughter’s name! They won’t forget a story about when “they” wanted juice and made it “themselves”!

Add in the personalized illustrations, and you have a book your child will read, again and again, strengthening their letter recognition each time.
