For generations, the alphabet was taught in schools by repetition. Children would memorise the tune and eventually be able to recite it by heart. But this isn’t always good enough. When it comes to learning the building blocks of reading and writing, being active and involved in the process is a must. And why not also learn outside of the school?

This is where My First Street ABC Book comes in. This interactive book is great for both young and young-at-heart, who will have a lot of fun spotting unique designs and shapes on the streets and matching them to the letters of the alphabet.

It’s easy! Work alone or together to complete your book by finding shapes on the street that look like letters. Take pictures with your camera or smartphone, print them out, and paste them on the blank right-hand pages. To inspire you, we've already done the ones on the left!
