Welcome to our Book List series! This will be replacing our Recommended Reads posts. We hope to publish a new booklist once a month. We’re starting off with our top 16 favorite books that teach the alphabet.
One of the most well beloved alphabet books, Chicka Chicka has bright colors that easily catch the eye of your baby or toddler. Keep in mind that if you get the board book version, it will only include half of what is in the picture book version (don’t worry, it will still make sense).
