“A, B, C, D, E, F, G ….and on and on as the song resounds, until it ends in X, Y, and Z.”
Children all over the world memorize this tune early in their childhood years, as their introduction to the alphabet with its symbols, sounds, and words. Stacey Marcus, author of literature for both children and adults, has come to the rescue of parents who can use this charming representation of each letter that will be a part of a sentence, confirming how much their child is loved and accepted not matter what. Ms. Marcus reflects on how the parent values the feelings of children using the very order of the A, B, C’s with which they connect. Impressive use of repetition is assuring to the child as his or her presence is the most important possession a parent can have.
