Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
"ABC's in rhymes meant to be sung... verses are inspired and different, such as: "G is for a Gift/ That you love to get/ Did you know, it's as much fun/ To give a gift instead!" Many other verses offer new images, concepts and ideas that emphasize the creative, positive, and humane outlook for children.... a wonderful educator's tool with a creative, compassionate twist, for children age 3 and up.

Top Customer Reviews
The author of S is for Smiling Sunrise, Vick Wadhwa, was inspired to write a children's alphabet book that taught values and morals at a preschool level. This book, offered by Wordsbright, is appropriate for children aged three to eight. The company also offers a fantastic set of teaching resources (which are free!) geared at two different age levels. Readers can download preschool or K-3 resources directly from the website to accompany the book.
The first thing I noticed about the book was how colorful and engaging it was. Each page is brightly decorated, but it is not too busy that it overshadows the content. The words are large and bold, perfect for beginning readers. While my third grade son, who is an excellent reader, felt that it was "too babyish," my first grader was pretty excited to be able to just pick up the book and read it himself. We read it aloud together a couple of times.
While the book itself may have been too young for my older one, the concepts were not. As a family, we sat down (trusty educator guide for older children tucked in beside me for a reference) and discussed each of the concepts listed on the alphabetical pages. Some of them were super simple, like Flowers, while others were a little more advanced, like Virtues.
If the children were a little bit younger, this would be a fabulous book for a nightly bedtime story. However, mine are right at the cusp.Read more ›
For example, “P is for Park and Playground. Places to have fun, Sit and watch, or go walk, hop, skip, jump, or run!”
V is for Virtues – Goodness in your heart. Caring, sharing and honesty. Learn well and be smart!”
This book is engaging and fun for kids and their parents with easy-to-sing along alphabet rhymes. The illustrations are bright and colorful and I highly recommend this book.
FTC Disclosure: I received a review copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review. I was not monetarily compensated for my opinion in any way.
S is for Smiling Sunrise exposes children to the alphabet using more complex and interesting words. This book is much more engaging than your typical ABCs and will keep children as well as parents interested.
From K is for kaleidoscope to T is for tasty, S is for Smiling Sunrise will grow with your own budding student, helping them learn the alphabet and expand their vocabulary.
In addition, there’s an easy-to-sing, free ABC song you can download. Your child will enjoy learning the new song, which you can play with the book or even in the car!
