This review is from: Jolly Songs (Jolly Phonics) (Paperback)
I'm not a special advocate of 'teaching small children to read' but if they enjoy it you had better use same system they will meet in school later. My 3year and 5 month old loves this CD and book. She puts it on then sits with the book in front of her and reads the phonic sound in advance of each song and sings along with the song. Yes, the songs are short but that actually seems to be what is needed.
There are surprisingly few materials available that use the phonics systen that the children will meet in primary school, but this is one of them. The Mr. Men Alphabet Hunt is also good although the phonetic sounds are slightly different. Beware of CDs that say they use phonics but actually use the letter names (BEE CEE DEE) not the phonetic sound.
