I Know My ABC's! (also known as I Know My Alphabet!) is a My First LeapPad book and cartridge available in the Reading section of the My First LeapPad library. It teaches the whole alphabet, A-Z.

Short Summary

Leap, Lily, Tad, and their mom and dad learn the alphabet, all the way from A to Z, by hearing and seeing everything in between. The player can interact with Leap and his family by playing with letters A-L on the front side, and on the flip side, M-Z!

Narrator

The narrator for this game is Julie Stevens, but sometimes Christiane Crawford would give directions for the games, even though Julie Stevens directs some of the games (USA). The British version is narrated by Morwenna Banks (UK).

Trivia

  • This is the first book to have the following voice actors do the roles of the Frog Kids:
    • Candi Milo voicing Leap (this is the first time to actually have Milo voice him, although she did his voice again in the first 2 videos beginning with The Letter Factory)
    • Lana Whittington voicing Lily (the first of 2 only times, the other being Lost and Found)
    • Nicole Rapp voicing Tad (dialogue lines)
  • On the flip side page with “Letters T and U”, we reveal that Tad’s favorite instrument in a marching band is the trombone (Leap has kept it a secret in the Sections of the Band in the original LeapPad model’s demo book, Leap Into Learning).
  • The music for the pages with "Letters D and E" and "Letters T and U" would later be used in 3 of the pages of the LeapPad Phonics Program book, "Alphabet Adventures".
  • The music for the page "Letter M" contains recycled background music from one page from the LeapPad Leap Start book, "Leap's Friends from A to Z".
  • The UK version uses the same format, but has a few differences:
    • All "lowercase" letters (abc) are used instead of the traditional uppercase letters (ABC).
    • Z is pronounced "zed". The original USA version pronounces its name as "zee".
    • On the page with "Letter P" on the flip side, Lily hitting a piñata at a party has been replaced with her befriending a parrot.
    • On the page with "Letter V", the word valentine appears and takes off the word vest (Leap is already wearing it).
    • On the page with "Letters Y and Z", the word zebra is pronounced "zeh-brah" (The original USA version says it as "zee-brah").
  • In the page with the Letter X, The X-Rays is a parody of the British band The Beatles.
