Letter of the Week Preschool Book List


I’ve debated making this list public for a while, but finally decided to do it, as I know I would have LOVED to find someone’s master list when I was coming up with my own.

Yes, it’s a lot of books. I know this. Before I came up with the list I went through our books and tried to match up as many as I could with each letter or theme. I bought (almost) all of the books used, which also saved me a lot of money.

First, I’ll start by saying that we read Chicka Chicka Boom Boom every Friday that we have a letter. It’s going to be one well used book by the end of the school year!

Most have 4 books (normal school week) and a few have 5 books (holiday and themed weeks.)
