For years teachers have used The Red Letter Alphabet Book as a complement to the Sandpaper Letters, integrating touch, sight, and sound to help children in the first stages of reading. This book uses greeting card felt (flocking) to make velvety, touch-sensitive letters, which invite children to touch and trace the shapes of the letters.
Three realistic drawings of everyday objects feature the red, textured letter opposite them. First use the pictures for sound games and later for word recognition. Includes a pronunciation guide of phonetic sounds and suggestions for use. Spiral-bound (coil). Printed on cardstock, 56 pages. Ages 2 - 6.
