I can learn my ABC’s
By: Leroy Blankenship and Valarie Shane Juerling
About the Book
Leroy Blankenship was inspired by a different way for children to learn their ABC'S.
With the use of interlocking words to weave rhyme and poetry represented by different characters, children can associate each verse with the letters of the alphabet. The combination of rhythm, poetry, and characters make the alphabet tangible and easier to remember.
Co-author Valarie Shane Juerling has applied the above philosophy with her Sand Tray therapy with children and adults.
