Based on the Timothy characters, the book is not as much a story as it is a set of fun excersises that let kids learn and practice letters and sounds. The level of difficulty is manageable for a 3 year old who knows some of the letters. The activities are fun and not complicated. We read this book on our bus commute every day and it helped my son grasp not only letters, but also sounds and rhymes.
Definitely a good one.
"Letters and Sounds" teaches many concepts. It was some games and activities related to rhyming. It teaches the old classic "The Hokey-Pokey." It helps kids to get interested in making word associations and finding words that begin with the same letters. One character even becomes a magician by creating new words via the changing of letters in other words.
This book is full of life and is a great tool to help get kids excited about words, reading, writing and language. Each page of the book contains "The Next Step" at the bottom, featuring advice on a continuation for an activity presented within the story text. The book ends with a Letter to Parents and Educators, explaining the rationale behind the series.
Each set of pages includes a different activity and cute illustrations to complement it. Oftentimes the text asks the reader to find or count something within an illustration. With each activity comes "The Next Step," which provides an additional idea for an activity one can do independent of the book. Best of all, this book has a story to go along with it as well. At the end, the kids all celebrate "Five Day." This book is wonderful preparation for concepts of counting, comparisons, memorizing important details and more.
