Parent & Teacher guide:
The Alphabets book by Adam & Mishmish is a fun book that presents the Arabic alphabet in an interactive and creative way. The child can flip the pages like a normal book or choose to spread the book out and read the alphabets in one line.
The book is based on the Alphabet song in Season One of the popular educational cartoon entitled Adam wa Mishmish.
Through a simple scan of the QR codes at the back of the book and the "Lets Go Series", the alphabets are brought to life through the animation and liveliness of the music, video, and augmented reality which helps connect children to the letters and encourages reading.
Alphabet books are an integral part of introducing children to reading because they:
- Teach children the shape of the letters
- Develops conversation and oral language
- Identifies the sounds the letters make
- Enriches vocabulary
- Encourage children to start reading.
The Alphabets book by Adam & Mishmish is an excellent book for parents wanting to teach their children the Arabic Alphabet with a catchy song that they will forever remember.
