Animals A-Z: Poems for Early Readers

Basic Info:

Written and illustrated by Gail C. Goldberg. Published by AuthorHouse in 2015.

Book Review:

This book, written by a teacher, is a great way to help young readers learn their letters. All of the letters are accompanied by a poem about an animal that begins with that letter! This will give kids a more memorable way to connect letter sounds with their letters. Let children learn their letters with Anty Ant and Batty Bat in this fun book! The hand-drawn illustrations are also great for reproducing and using as part of class projects alongside the book!


This is a resource that offers some other activity ideas that incorporate animals into learning about the alphabet!

This book would be great to read over time to correspond to a “letter of the week.” Each week, you can read the poem, create a class representation of the corresponding character, and hang it on the wall! This will really help make learning the alphabet much more hands-on!
