The ABC’s of Fern: 26 Little Things

Lately I’ve been working on introducing Fern to the alphabet. I like to point out letters when we see them and tell her what they are, and she’s already quite familiar with the ABC song and will hum the tune herself. Because of this, I thought it would be fun to put together a little alphabet book for her to look through, with letters and pictures that were based on things she knows, loves and other fun little things about her. I haven’t yet put the book together, but I wanted to share the “Fern Alphabet” that I came up with! Here are the ABCs of Fern: 26 Little Things…
