There are pictures to help with the sound of each letter.

The board books in this series are gorgeously designed with big bold illustrations that compliment nicely the textural symbols.

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!

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.

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!

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

My daughter attends a Montessori school which is why I purchased this book as well as the Montessori Number Work book. My daughter loves both books and pulls them out frequently. The books do follow the Montessori method, but be warned, the Letter Works book is in print, not script. That said, my daughter loves both books, and the Letter Works book is not hindering her progress in learning script. I do recommend these books.

I'm a big fan of this book! My twins are turning four and are in Montessori Preschool currently. They really love feeling the raised lettering in this book, it's very similar to sand-paper letters in their classroom. Very well organized (by writing patterns, not alphabetical). Very impressed. Recommending it to everyone with small Montessori children.
