Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Carrie Hane Hung
Twelve small booklets for little hands are in this early learning set, which is a part of the "My First Bob Books" series of sets. In the alphabet set, each booklet focuses on two or three alphabet letters and letter sounds. An upper case and lower case form of the letter along with pictures of items that begin with the initial letter are displayed. For the letter, B, the letters (upper and lower case), pictures of a bear and birds along with the word below the picture are shown. After the letter page is an alliterative sentence. There are simple, black-line drawings with one color accenting the pictures. The last pages combine the featured characters for the alphabet letters, in a final event. At the back of the booklet there is a summary of the words used with the featured letters and it includes additional items that begin with the featured letters that can be found among the illustrations. On the inside front cover are some tips about the letter sounds. For instance, there is an attempt to stay with short vowel sounds at the beginning of the word; however, readers will find some long vowel sounds. Included in the set is a list of some helpful information and tips while reading the booklets with a child. Important to remember is to have fun learning and to include lots of wonderful children's literature. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
