The Letter Factory

So you want your child to learn her letters and what those letters say? You don't want to wait for preschool or kindergarten and the alphabet song isn't working. What is a mom to do when her child just doesn't "get" the alphabet?
Resort to trickery - that's what you do!
Present the letters to your child in a manner that insures your child will never even know what you are up to. There is this wonderful little frog named Tad who has a marvelous adventure at The Talking Letter Factory where he learns that letters talk and each letter has its own unique sound. Put this video in and watch the magic as your child discovers all the letters of the alphabet along with their phonetic sounds. You can sit back and be proud that you managed to get your child to learn something without resistance.
The only problem with this method, of course, is that you have now sentenced yourself to watching The Letter Factory at least ten times a day for the next 200 days. You will find yourself singing along to the song and sometimes randomly singing this catchy tune out in public without the prompting of Professor Quiggly, which could possibly pose some embarrassment depending on where you happen to be when you start singing the sounds of the alphabet.

This is cute. My son will be two next week. I think I will steal your idea.
