When your toddler or preschooler is ready to learn the ABCs, where do you turn?
If you’re like many parents, you probably already read to your kids everyday. You might buy preschool workbooks or alphabet blocks and magnets. Maybe you point out the letters as you go about your day — street signs, store logos, and even the writing on the back of the cereal box. PBS Kids and YouTube are excellent resources too.
All of those things are good…and you should definitely keep doing them.
But Pinna has an awesome outside-the-box educational tool you can add to your teaching toolbox — letter-themed audio content.
Below, you’ll find a collection of podcasts, audiobooks, and music to help teach your little one their ABCs.
