This is a young version of Sam and Sarah, who spent lots of time on their bellies with a good book. It was my goal to instill an early love of letters, and both of them continue to be avid readers. I'd love to have this alphabet rug for my own home! And all those letters led to Alphabet Soup! Vintage chart with photo glued to cover.
