Whether it be phonics, morals, or math, each of these books goes above and beyond teaching the letter W! Check out some of my favorites.
1. The Snail and the Whale

Luckily, three helpful animals find the missing items, and all they want in return is a ride on the broom. But is there room on the broom for so many friends? And when disaster strikes, will they be able to save the witch from a hungry dragon? With words like witch and wind throughout, this is a great letter W book, especially around Halloween!
