Alphabet Stage
by Linda M. Phillips and Denyse V. Hayward

Alphabet Stage opens the curtain on the fascinating world of letters with a cast of entertaining characters and props.

An amusing performance unfolds as each new letter adds another novel element to the drama while previously introduced letters remain onstage. This impressive work incorporates the most recent emergent literacy research to introduce the alphabet and early literacy skills to children.
