This series began with a 3 month stay in Prague and research into my grandfather, Philosopher and Linguist Dr. Antonin Frinta's, role as a founding member of The Prague Linguistic Circle, along with his friend, Linguist Roman Jakobson.

ALPHABET BOOK- completed prototype. Book one includes audio disc for pronunciation. This is book one of a proposed three book set. I plan to seek funding or a publisher when near completion of the second book.
Book two and three will have grammar in context and are in the beginning stages of creation, using the work done recently as a graduate student at SUNY Albany. These books will be created in multiple bilingual editions, English being paired with various other languages such as Italian, Czech, Korean and Chinese.

Samples from the first book, the foundation, introduction of the wooden puppet which belonged to my grandfather.
