Dr. Seuss’s ABC Book! is one of my absolute favorite alphabet books. Although some may be bothered that he refers to them “big” and “little” letters instead of “capital” and “lowercase”, I think it is a perfect way to introduce very young children to the concept in a very literal way.
This book also happens to be one of Big Brother’s favorites. We read it today and then had fun trying to write the letters from the book in shaving cream. This is an activity I did in my classroom a couple times and the kids went bananas! I got out the dry erase board and showed Big Brother how to write the letters while he attempted to create the letter in the shaving cream.
This was a fun, easy and a little bit messy activity that combined lots of Big Brother’s favorites–Dr. Seuss, letters, and books!
