ABC Songs

I was going to list alphabet songs that I found individually, but Mary Catherine of Fun-a-Day has compiled a great list of 30 Fun Alphabet Songs that includes every song that I found and enjoyed. I personally enjoy the music of They Might Be Giants. I’ve also heard good things about the work of Dr. Jean.

ABC Apps

Caden has tried out many ABC apps in the past year or so. A couple of his favorites have been Alphatots and Agnitus, both of which we got during free promotions. Many of these apps are free, have free versions or are often on sale for free. Here are ten ABC apps for the iPad that I have found geared towards toddlers and preschoolers!
