Encourage Prewriting Skills with How to Build an A by Sara Midda {Featured Book}

We made a fantastic find a few weeks ago when we stumbled on the interactive book How to Build an A by Sara Midda.


 How to Build an A

Why? Because it's an alphabet book that not only teaches letter knowledge but promotes prewriting skills, too.

The books comes with 11 different pieces that can be combined in different ways to make all of the letters of the alphabet, both uppercase and lowercase. What's more is that on each page there is a cute illustration that helps to show the child how the letter should be formed.

It's lots of fun! We usually work on a few letters at a time, but baby bookworm has gotten quite good at this "game" and I can honestly say it has helped her writing skills.

So...don't forget that literacy encompasses both reading and writing skills. It's not often that you come across a book that makes it super easy to practice both.

Here are a few other ideas for encouraging prewriting in your baby, toddler, or 3 year old:
