Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
What appears to be a simple deck of alphabet cards turns out to be a real treasure trove of potential learning activities. Many are just plain fun! Starting with the basics, the cards can be used to learn the letters of the alphabet. Each letter is printed in a very large font on one side of a card. Once this objective is accomplished, then lots of other activities can ensue. For example, the flip side of each card shows the letter in its big and little forms and asks a question such as "What begins with Z?" The picture clue will help those who may be struggling to come up with the answer; just to make sure there is no mistake, the answer is printed on the card. The parent guide contains instructions for teaching the consonants and vowels, including a list to use for the short vowel sounds and another for the long vowel sounds. The cards can then be used to build short words and to build upon words—adding a "c" to "at" creates "cat," a "b" gives you "bat" and so on. Then, there are three suggested games to further the mastery of words. I like the Alphabet Hide-and-Seek, in which a card is hidden near an object that starts with the shown letter and the parent or caregiver offers a hint to start the hunt for the correct card. Many of the pictures will remind kids of their favorite Dr. Seuss story, since the Cat's hat is shown for "h" and the Cat himself for "c." The cards are plastic coated and sturdy, so they should stand up to plenty of use and abuse. They fit in a slip case that goes inside a box that appears to have a magnetic clasp.
