I had the opportunity to review their Come Dance With Us CD & The Groovy Letter Book. Which has been a great learning tool for my son who is 4 years old.  So I was super excited with them returning my email response from there company. This book makes the letter fun & easy to remember. My son also loved the CD as well he was listening to all the songs on the CD & dancing all goofy like he usually does when he acts silly. His favorite song was There's a Little Monkey I remember when he was like 2-3 years of age he would always make me sing that 3 Little Monkeys jumping on the bed. (lol) to funny.

Book Features:

Includes an accompanying CD (contains songs on the Letters and Vowels, to add a further audio/musical component to the learning outreach of the book)
Recommended for ages 1 to 4 years old
Illustrated in brilliant colors
Each letter is shown with color coded parts and directional arrows, to allow and encourage the child to begin to trace the letter's form.
Lowercase letters are used, which are more commonly found in words. Linking each letter with an object that looks like it and whose name starts with that letter.
Designed to be interactive
There are suggested activities for reading and writing included. Children are asked to say the letters' phonetic sound, and trace their little fingers along the letter, as if they were writing. Letters are cleverly broken down into 9 components in order to help children better remember letters and develop fine motor skills.

The Groovy Letter Book can be purchased for $14.95 and can be purchased directly from The First Wave
