C is not only the third letter of the alphabet—it is an important part of many words. The letter c can make different sounds depending on the word. In the word Carmen, the letter c sounds like a k. In the word cepillan, c sounds like an s. In the word chocolate, the letter c makes a whole new sound. This important letter of the alphabet is found in a number of words.
This book is a great way to introduce the letter c to young children. Without ever explicitly teaching about the letter c, children can discover for themselves the three different sounds that c can make. Throughout the book, the letter c is bolded to be able to stand out and help young readers learn to attend to text. On the last page of the book is a code for abdokids.com where you can find wonderful resources to help young children become familiar with the alphabet.
