At some point you might want to start introducing your little one to the alphabet or maybe they are asking to learn it. That was where we were a while back when our eldest wanted to start reading.
The first thing was to get him to recognize the different letters. I wanted to keep it fun, knowing that he can easily lose interest if things became boring. I ended up making some motor flash cards. These included some trucks and tractors, he LOVES all and everything with wheels.
These really got him going, learning the letters became secondary to learning all the different motoring icons. It really turned out to be a better activity than I ever expected.
Now on trips around town he tries to identify as many different motor badges as possible. Best of all he learned his ABC’s in no time and has even started reading simple words (to his own delight).
