Giving the gift of books and reading is always a welcomed gift and one that will make a difference in a little ones life. I was recently introduced to a series of books that are absolutely remarkable and contain life lessons that are essential for them to learn at a young age. This series of books is called, Alphabet Kids.
Alphabet Kids is an original, multicultural series following the adventures of Allegra (Italian-American), Elena (Hispanic-American), Isaac (Jewish-American), Oni (African-American), Umar (Arab-American) and Yang (Chinese-American) as they learn to embrace diversity through language, foods, customs & music! The timeless stories help teach children to love who they are and learn that people who are different can be very good friends. The concept for the Alphabet Kids was created by Allegra Joyce Kassin.
There are currently 6 books available in the Alphabet Kids series, all are co-authored by Patrice Samara and illustrated by Carol Nicklaus and Susan Unger. Here are the available books:
- Allegra's Apple Tree--written by Vivian Treves and Patrice Samara
- Elena's Birthday Surprise--written by Liana Perez and Patrice Samara
- Isaac's Zoo--written by Neme Alperstein and Patrice Samara
- Oni's Good Hair Day--written by Michelle Bodden and Patrice Samara
- Umar's Magic Oven--written by Abed Awad and Patrice Samara
- Yang's New Dance--written by Dr. Jingyi Hong and Patrice Samara
These Alphabet Kids books are perfect for kids ages 2-8 and can be purchased individually or as a set pre-wrapped in a bow with anAlphabet Kids tote included. Plus, when you give the gift of Alphabet Kids to your children, Alphabet Kids will donate a book to a child in need.
I think these books would be an wonderful addition to any young child's, daycare, preschool, elementary school, or public library. Teaching cultural diversity, understanding and acceptance is vitally important for our children in the diverse world we live in. And, I hope you will consider ensuring that these books are part of you children's life. Plus, there are lots of other resources for parents and teachers on their Alphabet Kids website.
