The idea of Dr. Maria Emilija Kukubajska to write “Emilina’s ABC Book” exceeds the basic goal with its didactic purpose – childhood literacy at age 3-6. This book introduces an innovative and fresh approach to the youngest population that she considers already capable enough for literacy acquisition and personality cultivation. What is particularly important about this book is that Dr. Kukubajska invests a new kind of emotional intelligence in the interaction between parents as teachers, or preschool teachers and children. This mutual relatedness is of utmost importance for successful overcoming of the first problems in building skills, abilities and knowledge applied in creating the first letters by turning “lines” and “circles” into alphabetical signs. “Emilina’s ABC Book” helps children not only to practice their hands, but also practice thinking and self-awareness, knowledge and attitude towards others, responsiveness to the connection between sound and image, i.e. between phoneme and letter. This ABC book facilitates a synchronized development of the emotional intelligence within the earliest literacy process, which improves children’s capacities for cognitive development and advancement of quality and speed needed in the acquisition of learning and coping with future programs in the educational systems.
Key words: emotional intelligence, self-awareness, cognition, educational system, Emilina’s ABC Book.
