A lphabet Zoo
Alphabet Zoo is designed and reviewed by educators to teach children letter-sound association, an essential skill for learning to read. More importantly, kids have fun playing with the animals and creative sounds without even realizing they're learning.

In high school, Patrick had studied classical cello, but also frequented rock shows and tried to incorporate the likes of Metallica and Tool into his cello repertoire, alongside Bach. Ivan had simil
