Great book for first reading and early beginner readers


Charlie and Sally are looking for something special. They are looking for the letter "b”. It has disappeared. Can you find it?


In this colorful book, your child will learn to write, read, and, above all, see letters visually by omission and repetition.

With easy-to-understand illustrations, this is a new and fun way to learn.


How to use this book:


1. Two pictures of an object are given with its spelled out word. The first picture has all letters included while the second picture omits the key letter of the book.

2. Showing the child the first picture and the complete word, turn the page to see the missing letter or letters. Have the child write in the letter, checking the prior page to see what is missing.

3. Reiterate the picture and the word so he or she can correlate the picture to the word in his or her mind.

4. When seeing the book’s letter in other writings, point it out to the child for reinforcement. Play a game searching for the letter in other formats.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The Day The A Went Away A basic book for learning spelling and writing, you have an image plus the word for it underneath, then the next page, the a is taken away from the word so it’s kind of a simple, repetitive fill in the blanks game. On the one hand, taking away the same letter each time makes it easier, but without changing up the letter that’s missing it might not be challenging enough of a game for slightly more advanced readers. Also it would have been good to see the kids on the cover more involved in the story. #plumreview
