LETTERS AND WORDS by David L Krieger


Email this review


. . . is just what this is made up of: all the letters in a variety of type faces, antique to contemporary, upper and lower case and also in cursive; and, for each, ""words (that) start with"" the letter, ""words (that) end in"" the letter, words that have the letter in the middle. Whether a child learning letter forms benefits from being exposed to the difficult Gothic alphabet is debatable; so is the wisdom, at this stage, of including examples in which the letter illustrated is suppressed entirely (house) or partly (brush). A related difficulty arises from the very different pronunciations of a single letter introduced at random here. After yoyo and buoy and skyrocket, we can only say hey!
