Books to Teach the Letter X
Whether it be phonics, morals, or math, each of these books goes above and beyond teaching the letter X! Check out some of my favorites.
1. My Mom Has X-ray Vision
Matthew’s mom is just like all the other moms. She has ordinary hair, ordinary clothes, and a nice smile. Matthew’s mom is just like all the other moms . . . EXCEPT she has X-RAY VISION! How else could she always know what Matthew is up to? She knows when he jumps on the bed, or when he uses her pots and pans outside, and she even knows when he is wrestling with sea monsters in the bathtub! Matthew is sure his mom can see through things just like a superhero! One day… he decides to test his theory! This cute book made me laugh more than my daughter.
2. The Adventures of Taxi Dog

They share all sorts of wild adventures-from rushing two clowns and a chimp to the circus, to singing duets with an opera diva! Your children will love this book!
3. Fox on the Job
When Fox breaks his bike, his mom tells him to get a job to pay for a new one.

Climb in for a flight across the ocean, a jaunt on a sailing ship, some sledding down a slippery slope, and a brief stint as a robot. Good thing the toy pup that came inside the box is happy to come along for the ride!
