Maybe 19 months? Shortly after he began to speak he could recognize all letters on sight, colors, shapes, etc. He actually learned most of the alphabet before he learned any two word phrases etc. and well before he learned the song which we never really sang. Favorite alphabet books after he learned them were Chicka Chicka Boom And Dr. Seuss's ABC book as well as those foam alphabet toys for the bath.

He doesn't watch tv and we are all about natural, open-ended toys. He just likes letters and books a lot. He is now almost 3 and although he picked up lower case easily hasn't made the connection between letters / sounds / reading. Its cool but we don't push it. We do spend a LOT of time reading books.
