The Artful Educator, prices vary

The Artful Alphabet is a wonderful addition to any family with young children because it not only helps provide immediate and continued educational inspiration through its embedded educational content, but it also enables confidence in parents to start talking and making connections with their children. I created The Artful Alphabet because my own husband needed help connecting with our first child when he was a newborn. If our baby was changed, fed and not yet ready to sleep, my husband struggled to make that time meaningful because our baby couldn’t respond to anything he said. So, I started with making my son’s initials and my husband used them as a cue for conversations and really got into it. When we had our daughter, he was a pro, talking to her about anything under the sun. The conversations using the Artful Alphabet continue and evolve as our children grow because there is always something else to learn about the items in each letter. The beauty of the art is that it conjures unique memories and information, allowing it to take on special meaning for everyone who engages with it. So, whatever form it may take – wall art, flashcards or a placemat for meal time – it will help build that needed habit of quality conversation.
