"The Groovy Letter Book" (which also includes an accompanying CD) is a new kind of teaching alphabet book for children 1 to 4 years old. Illustrated in brilliant colors, each letter is shown with color coded parts and directional arrows, to allow and encourage the child to begin to trace the letter's form. The letter is also embedded into the illustration, an object beginning with the letter's sound. For example, "C is for crescent moon," and "P is for parrot." There are suggested activities to help develop beginning readiness for reading and writing in the beginning of the book. An accompanying CD contains songs on the Letters and Vowels, to add a further audio/musical component to the learning outreach of the book. "The Groovy Letter Book" is an imaginative, integrated organized presentation of an effective method to teach preschool children letters, phonetic sounds, and pre-writing skills. It makes an excellent and vivid introduction to reading and writing for young children.
