Children learn best through movement and play, and the delightful, colorful Alphabet Movers inspires kids to shape letters with their bodies while dancing from A to Z. Using movement-rich words, like bounce and climb, children are encouraged to create a dance with a specific letter or to jump, hop, leap, and skip from letter to letter to spell words and have fun.

"An excellent resource for teachers and parents -- and loads of fun for kids. Benzwie uses movement, song and rhyme to teach young children the alaphabet. Children can instinctively create, perform, and respond to language through movement which builds strong pathways to learning. Easy and fun to use at home or in play groups, early childhood programs, nursery schools, or elementary education classrooms. Kids learn better through movement and kinesthetic learning. Highly Recomended!"
