A wonderful journey through the alphabet and a great introduction to phonics. This book has a different image for each letter of the alphabet: For A, there is an apple; for B, there is a balloon, etc. Then, for each letter, there is a sentence that reads: 'The letter A sounds like apple' to which the child must attach the correct picture symbol. The book covers the whole alphabet and makes learning about phonics a whole lot of fun.
Sounds Good To Me teaches the letters of the alphabet and how they sound at the beginning of words. (ex: The letter D sounds like duh-duh DUCK.) Students match, identify, and label the pictures, then put them on the appropriate square to match the letter with the same beginning sound. (ex: The picture of the "apple" will go next to the letter "A".) You can also ask the students questions that they can answer verbally or by pointing to the correct picture. (ex: What do you use when it rains? Answer: umbrella, etc.)
