Letter Monsters

When Anya was first learning her letters, I made a bunch of letter monsters. They had lots of sharp teeth and look very chompy.They also all had names, stories, and adventures … I was reminded of them when someone in a parenting group asked how they could encourage their kid to learn the sounds letters made. The stories for the monsters were all letter themed — Collette works as a cabdriver — her car has “CAB” written in a big chartreuse circle. When she is done working, she cleans her car and collects anything passengers may have forgotten. She enjoys a cup of coffee in the cafeteria before heading home. When she is at home, she cares for her cat. And, yeah, drawing a toothy letter monster snugging a cat is a challenge 🙂
