Many siddurim (prayerbooks) published today contain a chart of the Hebrew alphabet towards the beginning (see e.g. page 11 of this pdf).

What was the first siddur published to contain an alphabet chart?

    It really bothers me when those charts have בּ ב כּ כ ךּ ך פּ פ and sometimes תּ ת but not גּ ג דּ ד ףּ ף. – Heshy Dec 31 '18 at 14:07
  • If I'm not mistaken, Siddur Shilo, which was considered a "children's" siddur in almost every yeshiva in the 60's and 70's, did not have an aleph-bet chart. I can't say "cause and effect" here. Did yeshivot use such siddurim b/c they had these charts, or did publishers sometimes revise their siddurim with them in the hopes that they would be used by children? – DanF Dec 31 '18 at 20:03
