Most kids learn the alphabet song when they are young. This helps to introduce letter order in an easy way.

However, there are many benefits to learning letter order beyond being able to sing a catchy tune.

For one, it can help with letter recognition. When kids are first learning the alphabet, they often have trouble differentiating between similar-looking letters.

By putting the letters in order, they can easily see the differences between them.
