Use 'Movable Alphabets' with this book for better results
on June 11, 2008
The book is very good.
My kid is in prek at a Montessory school, So my purpose of buying the book was to reinforce what is taught at school. The book is about rhyming words which are more of 3 or 4 alphabet characters (mat,cat,cap,nap,dad,sad etc). However the biggest drawback I found in the book is the number of pages.There is virtually no repetition possible if the kid needs to repeat it.
So to augment it, I purchased 'Movable Alphabets'for about $50.00 from a leading auction site (ebay or google to find movable alphabets,even if you dont buy , You will get a better idea). Alternatively, you can cut alphabets neatly printed on a paper( blue color for vowels and red for rest, 10/vowel and 5 regular alphabets,laminate it if possible and arrange it neatly in order of A-Z)
My kid loves to learn words and thank Kumon for it.Kumon Publishers,you are doing an awesome job ,but please do not do penny pinching...Charge few dollars more and make the book over 200 pages with several optional exercises.!
This is the reason why the book did not get 5 stars
