The Letter Buddies® is a collection of 26 letter characters developed to help young children learn how to read.
Each character has a distinct personality or set of traits that makes them unique just like every child out there!
The Letter Buddies make reading more fun by adding a recognizable and recurring face to stories and materials.
Created in collaboration with several leading early childhood reading experts, these fun-loving alphabet characters
were first introduced into the educational school market in 2006. Meet all of the Letter Buddies here.
Letter Buddies reading products include books, educational apps, worksheets & videos that focus on teaching

and that literacy learning can be simultaneously fun and impactful, Kevin and Yun have designed a series of creative,
engaging educational products and experiences for young children based around the Letter Buddies Characters. Read
