The movie's analysis of Alphabet characters shows children how letters are used in language, the special characteristics of each letter, and how sounds are changed when letters are combined with other letters. Just look at the lyrics for the letter "A".
A is a special character because it can stand alone;
It doesn't even need a cane or a very strong backbone.
It says that there aren't many, but just one of anything;
Like A ball, A cat, A merry-go-round, or A great big shiny ring.
A likes to be with friends like N or T or S or M,
to make up little bitty words like AN, AT, AS and AM.
Add a B or H or J and things change fast - wham bam!
From AT to BAT or AS to HAS or even AM to JAM.
In a few short verses, children learn that "A" can be used by itself, that "A" is used when there is only one object and that when other letters are added to the letter "A", words are formed in an interesting way. The graphics that accompany the lyrics on the DVD are dynamic and very colorful, making it a fascinating lesson for children. Even adults will enjoy the beautiful images, animation and engaging music. Everyone, regardless of age will learn something from this video!
