Alphabet learning for kids
Learning the alphabet is an important step for children and it goes through different and varied media.

This is done at different paces depending on the children, the periods and the curiosity of each.

Primers are visual aids presenting all the symbols of an alphabet, almost always listed in alphabetical order, then followed by one or more words whose first letter begins with the designated initial. In the form of books or posters they can be used to teach children the letters of the alphabet and associate the words that begin with each letter.
