Well, I did find a little booklet, more of a long document really, that would serve quite well to get a parent introducing mnemonics to a child. The approach is very simple, as it should be, and just introduces the Linking Method and the Major System in very basic but quite usable ways. The author’s child was 5 years at the introduction of Linking, and 6 years when the Major System was introduced.

Easy Way with Simple Mnemonics

It’s an Amazon Kindle Title of only 12 printed pages and sells for US$3.99. This forum doesn’t allow links but just go to Amazon dot com and search for the above title.
Note to Amanda: I don’t know if you are familiar with Amazon Kindle, but there are millions of titles available from all genres imaginable, at prices a fraction of what you will pay for paper, and all easily and instantly available. I have a Kindle reader device, but you can also read Kindle publications on mobile phone or computer using free downloadable app. Just search. For the last several years I have sourced 99.99% of my reading as Amazon Kindle downloads.
I do hope you pursue this with Coop. You’ll never regret it and there will come a time when he will be eternally grateful.
PS Mastering the Cyrillic Alphabet in a little over an hour was no mean feat for me and I’m really only an amateur at mnemonics.
