Book Review

Kathy Ross Crafts with Letter Shapes is a good book for teaching children about letters while making a fun craft based on the shape of the letter. The instructions for each project are clear and simple, the number of steps ranging anywhere between two and seven for the crafts. There are color drawings of the tools and materials required to make the craft and as well as drawings to accompany the step-by-step instructions. I like that there are little bonuses with each of the crafts to extend the learning based on the letter associated with the craft. For example, with the letter M there is a question, “Can you name some munchies that the letter M mouse might eat that start with the letter M?” This question is accompanied by drawings of the answer to the question you can use to prompt children if they can’t think of it on their own. Another good example of a bonus craft associated with a letter is the magazine picture puzzles you can make of items starting with the letter P. This book is a great resource for teachers and parents alike to enhance their children’s learning in a fun way. At the back of the book there are some additional activities children can do based on all the letters of the alphabet including making a name plaque for their room, an alphabet picture file as well as decorating each letter of the alphabet with items beginning with the respective letters. There is nothing bad I can say about this book because as a parent and a teacher Kathy Ross has found a way to make learning the alphabet fun and there’s nothing wrong with that!
