A is for Ketchup. “No it’s not!” That’s the first thing that the toddler noticed when we sat down to read this book together. A new book is one of her favorite things, and a silly new book? Well, she just loves that.

I could teach her letter sounds until I am blue in the face by recognition and repetition – but A is for Ketchup did what I’ve been trying to incorporate into our learning schedule, and it did it quicker than I could.
With the hints through the images in the book, she was able to have the prompts she needed to find the ‘right’ sound that went with the right letter – and I was able to read the book without it becoming a chore (even the twelfth time around).
