The ABCs of Halloween

Lately I've been working with my son Stan on sounds of letters, but I found that we always fell back to the same handful of examples (e.g., "A is for Apple," and so on).  So I came up with a list that was a bit more relevant to our shared interests.  You're quite welcome to help your kid learn to read similarly!


Note: I tried to include as many alliterative examples as I could such as Metaluna Mutant, Famous Monsters of Filmland, House on Haunted Hill, etc. since those really drive home the point.  We've always used "haunted house" as an example of the letter H.
