We were introduced to the My First Steps to Reading and My First Steps to Math books by our librarian. The author, Jane Belk Moncure, introduces every letter and number individually in a book. Filled with phonics and fun, my children choose these books first during our free reading time.
These two series by Jane Moncure are the best books which I have found for teaching numbers, letter, and phonetic sounds. I used these books to introduce the letter and number of the week to my children. Sadly these books are no longer in print, but I encourage you to search for these books at your library, on Amazon or Ebay, and in used book stores. Most libraries should also carry these books. To clear up any confusion, I have seen the individual books titled My a Book as well as My a Sound Box. The "Sound Box" books are library editions but exactly the same as the other books.
As you read these books, use the phonetic sound of the letter and not the letter name. After several readings, invite the child to read the phonetic sound of each letter.
And when you graduate from the My First Steps books, you may enjoy these:

ABCJesusLovesMe is an educational ministry that equips adults with the materials needed to be intentional in educating children. To do this, ABCJesusLovesMe designed five comprehensive, research-based curricula for ages 1-5 that focus on academics, development, and Bible learning through play. Additionally, a Sunday School curriculum, unit studies, digital downloads, and the Be Intentional Planner accompany the core curricula. These materials are sufficient on their own, but the heart of ABCJesusLovesMe is to offer guidance, support, and direction to make your educational efforts at home, preschool, or church successful.
