Alphabet books have been around almost since Guttenberg invented the printing press. First published to educate using biblical scriptures, alphabet books have come a long way. There are themed alphabet books that relate to nearly every subject one can imagine. Whether it's a simple picture book that uses the ABCs to depict freshwater fish or an elaborate and information filled alphabet book all about motorcycles, there is an alphabet book out there for almost anyone.

The short, rhyming phrases not only teach children about the 26 letters used in the English language, but help beginning readers learn about the sounds of those letters. The pages are filled with such animals as a carp with a harp, a jay in May and a vulture with culture.
