For example, in the first episode, we name 't' words and are presented with 'tiger, toast, spaghetti and alligator' as the four examples, rather than nice easy words like 'cat'. In a later episode, we are told that 'chicken' doesn't have a 'h' in it.
Child seems to enjoy it but not banking on her learning anything.
As far as being material to teach a child to read, it's a great support - it won't do the job all alone!!!
I have worked with her through 7 of the 20 units of the marvelous Reading Lesson: Teach Your Child to Read in 20 Easy Lessons by
Michael Levin. Anyone really serious about teaching their child to read can't ( in my view ) do better than this book. It teaches the child the sounds, and bit by bit, the child puts the sounds together to make words, so read. I do the book with her about 4 times a week, and cannot emhpasise enough the fact it WORKS!!!!! Get it!!! Try it!!!! You'll see!!!
Especially valuable for kids who don't get too much screen time, as they really concentrate. I really enjoyed sitting with them and taking part for the first few showings until they got the idea.
I have 2 sons, aged 3 & 5, the oldest of whom is autistic and hates anything to do with letters (or learning in general). As soon as the DVD started the boys were transfixed! They absolutely love the letter poster that accompanies the DVD, although I did have to cover it with clear sticky-back plastic as it started to rip with all the enthusiastic prodding it was receiving. My youngest can now start to put letter sounds together to pronounce words. I can't say anything negative about this item. It's a wonderful way of introducing your child to the concept of letters and sounds.
I agree with previous reviews that it seems odd to me that the DVD jumps between introducing one letter and then showing the video clip of a different letter. However, it has not stopped my son learning the sounds, so can't complain.
