5.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to get a child started on reading, 26 Feb. 2010
This review is from: Finger Phonics Books 1-7, Jolly Phonics (Set of 7) (Hardcover)
When my 3 yr old expressed an obvious interest in learning to read like his older brother I got these books thinking that he could use the ones with individual letters and my older son my benefit from the diagraph books. They use Jolly Phonics alongside the Oxford Reading Tree at school. However my youngest son sped through all 7 books in a couple of weeks then started at the beginning again! He loves them. He likes the pictures, the way you can trace the letter with your finger, and the quizzes at the end. He will often ask for them as a bed time story. Through these books he has learnt all his letters and fair number of diagraphs which they don't start until reception at our school.

If your child is interested in letters and you want to help him/her learn in a fun way then these are great books that give a good foundation to reading. If your child is not interested (as my oldest wasn't at 3) then wait until they are before you buy or else they will end up sitting on the shelf!

I have actually discovered they are very good for my 20mnth child too! She likes the tactile letters and wants to know the names of all the things in the pictures! Being board books they are robust enough for her too!
