This book has a feeling of an old method of teaching, both in the way it is presented as in the illustrations. My son (5 years old) loves it and it is helping him to reinforce what he is learning at school and grow in confidence to draw letters.
The only unfortunate thing was, that my child decided to do it all in one sitting, when I wasn't paying attention.... Thus, we did not manage to achieve the aim, which was to learn the sound and name to each letter. Otherwise it could have worked with it's colourful layout, tracing, writing and playful exercises.
