Children's Literature (Marilyn Courtot)
The books that constitute the ‘Sound Box’ library are attractively packaged with colorful illustrations on crisp white pages. The series has been designed and written to teach phonics and words that have the appropriate sounds. The format is the same for each letter of the alphabet and includes blends as well as short and long vowels. The opening and closing pages are filled with the featured letter; the title page shows a young child with objects that start with the featured letter sound. This book is different because it introduces the alphabet and the kids and many of the words that are in the individual books. It is a multicultural cast and a wild romp through the alphabet.
