These 26 poems are written at a shared reading level to assist with learning each letter of the alphabet and its corresponding sound(s). The illustrations form a key part of the learning and contain hidden pictures, which begin with the target letter/sound.The alphabet letters are colour-coded to provide a visual cue so that children will quickly recognise and remember letter/sound relationships. Children will also discover that the target letter/sound can be found at the beginning, middle or end of a word.On the CD/tape, each poem is read twice. The first reading, is at a slower pace for understanding and to encourage children to follow the text with their finger. The second time, the poem is supported by sound effects and is read more quickly. This reading encourages fluency, rhythm and expression.
