Auntie Allison and Uncle Danny, along with cousins Drew and Lexi, lovingly made an Alphabet Book for Ronan's first Christmas. What is an alphabet book? This one is a large scrapbook with each page dedicated to a letter of the alphabet. Included are photographs or drawings of nouns (and a couple of verbs) that begin with the pages subject letter.
It's more than just something to read- Ronan's Alphabet Book has become a staple in his daily routine. When he is finished with his meal (he tells us by signing "all done"), we excuse him to walk over and "read" his Alphabet Book. He spends a few minutes flipping through the pages and pointing out the images or colors that interest him.
What is his favorite letter? It's probably too early to tell, but "M" receives a disproportionate amount of his time. That's probably due to pictures of "motorcycle", "monkey", and his cousin Drew "mowing" the lawn on that page. However, "B" ("bicycle", "beach", "ball", "batting", "brother", "boys") has been increasing page views steadily.
The Alphabet Book is such a fun part of Ronan's learning process; a very big *thank you* to Auntie Ala, Uncle Danny, and of course Drew and Lexi for such a thoughtful gift!
