Get Your Mouth Ready for a Treasury of Small Stories
Get Your Mouth Ready for a Treasury of Small Stories is a unique alphabet book that stresses beginning alphabet blends and digraphs rather than single-letter alphabet sounds. It is a unique spin on the traditional alphabet books. This book is a collection of small stories that reinforces a variety of beginning sounds with two letters working together to form one sound.
