The best features-
It's a 60 educational practice page book.In each page there are some pictures given where you have to name the picture and then circle the picture that begins with a specific letter sound.Sometimes you have to join the same first letter pictures with lines. Working on the pages is fun and really enjoyable.Besides fun , this workbook is educational in true sense, as my kid now confidently tells the each letter of a word just hearing the sound of each letter of a word.There are scopes for tracing letters also which is quite good, it also encourages writing letters in this way.
This book also emphasizes on words with short vowels a,e,i,o,u..The child can learn vowels as well as its sound.
The most rewarding part is gold star pages.. where from your child can get a gold star sticker and stick it on the page as soon as he/she completes it perfectly.
My kid enjoys learning with this book and she loves her lesson with it.
I will say, this book is the first and most valuable step toward learning how to spell or read.
For each letter there are 2 pages of activities: one requires the child to find all the objects that start with that letter among a group of objects and the other one finding the only object in a group of three that begins with that letter.
After every 10 pages or so there is a general activity page where small pictures are accompanied with three letters and the kid is required to find the correct letter that the object in the picture starts with. These pages cover all the letters up to that point.
The last pages, after all the letters are covered, are another group of activities which require finding the middle missing letter or recognizing the whole word among similar ones. This require more skill than the first set of activities and therefore a kindergarten student would do it better.
The pictures are repeated a few times for different activities and this ensures the child to build some new vocabulary. For example my son did not know the word 'can' as in canned food and after I told him and he came across a few more times he was easily noticing it. The pictures are mostly clear and easy to recognize. There are some ambiguities but those are really limited.
Finally the book offers 140 stickers and a completion chart. The idea is that for each activity a sticker needs to be put on the corresponding page number on that chart. Good luck if you manage to get them used that way. My son had already sticked half the stickers randomly by the time I first handled the book, kids just don't stop when they handle stickers :)
In conclusion, this is a really useful basic practice book. Perhaps it might have offered a wider range of activities but there is no harm being plain and simple as well. I liked the book and my son spends a good amount of time with it. For less than $4 it is a real bargain
That being said, if your kiddo (at any age!) is not comfortable with sound recognition this could help. If they are already very comfortable with their letter/sound recognition then I'd go for something a little more complicated.
For the price, it's pretty reasonable. We're about a third of the way through so far, and my pre-schooler loves the gold stars at the back. They have motivated her to keep working for each page, but I can see her losing interest soon since it's pretty easy and repetitive.
Welp..... just take a look at the bottom left corner of the page. Say "Fuh" then say what the picture is........
I didn't catch it when I said it, but I got wide eyed then burst out laughing when my 4yo daughter repeated it.
