    Today we will learn about the letter ‘A’.
    ‘Afghanistan’ starts with the letter ‘A’.
    If you live in Afghanistan,
    You often here loud booms.
    “Booms’ start with the letter ‘B’
    And are often caused by bombs.
    Afghanistan and booms and bombs go together.
    Because of Islam, which starts with the letter ‘I’.

    Tomorrow, we will explore the letter ‘C’.
    Both ‘Civilization’ and ‘Christianity’
    Start with the letter ‘C’.

    Isn’t learning the alphabet and history at the same time great fun?
