We work on both every night with his regular reading books.

The board books in this series are gorgeously designed with big bold illustrations that compliment nicely the textural symbols.
Kagan Byron
This a great book to teach children the alphabet and help them learn letter sounds.

I was very skeptical getting the letter work book because of some of the negative reviews, but I am so glad I got it anyway. I think some of the reviews are referring to a different book, bcz all the letters are with the picture. My daughter loved this book and wanted to go through it over and over. I love it's layout, opposed to others, and the pictures are really cute.
I do wish the letters had more texture though. I am considering getting glue and adding glitter on them or something to make it more attractive for my daughter to feel.
Overall, I love this book, and I can't wait to get the number book when we get our alphabet down. :)
Have a great day!

NO, NO, NO! Be very careful...the way the letters are presented are totally wrong! One should NEVER say "duh" for "d". It is training the child's ear incorrectly.. If that were the sound, we would say "duhog" when we mean to say "dog". This is a big mistake. Linguists and language specialists warn about this all the time. Say "d" shortly and succinctly, please

I'm sure the reviews mention this, though of course I was busy and didn't read them, but the letters in the book are very slightly textured and feel raised, rather than indented. Based on the picture I had assumed the pages were double board book pages with the top cut out so the child could keep their fingers within the letter easily. Not so. The pages are board, and very high quality. I do appreciate that the letters are introduced as sound, rather than name, and they are grouped by shape rather than alphabetically. In other words, the "guh" (g) and "qwuh" (q) come very first. All letters are lowercase. My sister in law, a certified Montessori teacher, looked over the book and she was impressed, though even she was annoyed, as I was, by the A being spelled as "aeh" which stumps me every time, and I find myself glancing at the ant picture to remind myself of the pronunciation. Perhaps that is just me. My sister in law also mentioned that having my child use two fingers to trace the letter will aid in their correct grasp of a pencil.

All this aside, it must be said that my four year old loves her book, but also loves to move my hand aside and show me how she likes to do the letter, and proceeds to trace the letter in the most nonsensical fashion. :-P However, I also love the book and will most likely be purchasing others in the series.

These are high quality books to introduce the alphabet Montessori style... the letters have a sandpaper texture without the sand falling off, so it's wonderful!

My son (4) uses this book as well as Kid O free form Magnatab (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004PR49EM/ref=cm_cr_ryp_prd_ttl_sol_3) to practice his fine motor skills. Great to take both to the restaurant to keep him engaged or at the table. The letters in the book have a light sand paper feel as well as direction arrows to properly form each letter. There are pictures to help with the sound of each letter.

Got this for one of my nephews for Christmas. He's two and he would spend hours tracing with his finger,he always requested rading this book....but my 3 yr old on the other hand got bored after a minute of it. It is a wonderful learning tool for small children who are precise and patient and learning their letters!
