With each letter, it takes on a personality which is brought out in the rhyme and in the identifying words such as snake, sleek, slinky for the letter "S." As the child is being read this rhyme, he can repeat all these "S" words with emphasis on the s-s-s-s sound. This helps him to develop listening and thinking skills because he hears the sound, repeats the sound, and thinks about the context of the rhyme and the picture on the page.
Look at the "T" page and the "T" words that go along with it. "T" stands tall, too. We want our capital "T" to go all the way to the top of the space between the lines so he stands tall.
T stands tall hauling timber on top of his head.
He’s building a tree house and painting it red.
T – Timber
