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.

I bought these flashcards for my granddaughter's first birthday, and she will be three tomorrow. These cards are thick hard clear coated and the case in also made of the same durable material with a magnetic flap closure. My granddaugter still brings me these flashcards to go over with her on a regular basis, and still has all the cards in very good nearly perfect condition. Surely, they are Dr Seuss animal shapes, but she never had a problem identifying with them since we always have read Dr Seuss books to her. I would highly recommend these to every parent of a learning toddler.

I bought this for my nephew (he was a few months away from 3 when I purchased this item) and we use it over Skype as we do not live in the same state. We use only the letters associated with words he knows verbally (his name, grandma, grandpa, mom, dad, Krissy) and he is getting the letter names and identification quickly. The only issue I have with the cards is that the kids have to know Dr. Seuss characters for the back side of the card to be helpful. He does know train and that is on the back of his name card so this was not an issue for this letter. As he becomes more familiar with Dr. Seuss the characters will be more helpful. Right now, the strategy for print awareness is working and we have fun with it over Skype.

My daughter was struggling with her letters so we got these flash cards and used them on a regular basis. She not only picked up on the letters but she has also started associating letters to specific words. They show the lower and uppercase letters together on one side of the cards which is also great and simply have the uppercase on the other. I just wish they'd come out with the same thing for lower case letters so that we could focus more on them now.

I like the cards, the letters are crisp and I like that both lower and upper case are used. The only thing that I don't particularly care for is the Seuss style of drawings, realistic images might be a better tool.
