This imaginative take on the alphabet features 26 Wee Alphas postcards, each created with a "hidden letter” to find.
Based on the award-winning Wee Alphas kids’ app, the postcards feature quirky illustrations of Biki the Buffalo, Ulysses the Unicorn, Yolanda the Yeti, and their furry, feathered, or finned friends. The cards are bound into a fold-out accordion format that can be displayed in its entirety, or they can be detached to separately display or share. Writing prompts on the back of each card will inspire any kid (or their grown-up) to pass along a super-special greeting.
These postcards are really cute! Each animal has a letter hidden somewhere in the design. It's not really a challenge to find them, but it is fun. My little guys have had fun with it.
They're designed so that you can send them to people as mail, but I can't say we'll be planning that. I wouldn't want to break up the set, and it just seems wrong to do so. ;) You have that option, though. (These are really postcards.) The back of each one has things pertaining to the letter on the front. For example, the letter "C" has:
Chipper (with a check box beside each one)
Cheery wave, (blank)
P.S. Can you spot the hidden letter in Charlie the Chipmunk?
(Each one has something different on it. It doesn't follow the same format.)
You also have the option to keep these in the book form that they come in, or to tear them out and use them as flashcards or even artwork. (Each one is perforated for easy removal.) We like it in book form for now. It's just much easier to keep up with that way. (I'm sure we're not the only family that looses pieces to sets and games if we're not super careful.) :P
Overall, this is a fun little set of cards for a rainy day activity(for younger ones), or to actually send to people as postcards(for adults).
