Alphabet Monster

An alphabet rhyme for toddlers and pre-schoolers that uses the letters of a child's own name.

Literacy Tip

I’m Becky. My son, Holden, is 3 and knows the alphabet song, but this
rhyme helps him learn that letters can be put together in lots of different ways.


I’m the Alphabet Monster
And nothing tastes better
To the Alphabet Monster
Than eating a letter.
A “j” and an “a”
And a “c” and a “k”
And the million more letters
I munch every day.
I’m hungry now.
What shall I do?
I think I’ll eat
a “y”
an “o”
and a “u” . . . . . . that means YOU!
