Practice "little" letters one at a time. This Lowercase Alphabet workbook from the Get Ready! series will help your child practice tracing and writing lowercase letters, which is an essential first step in learning to read. Plenty of bright-colored critters make it more fun! Plus, the illustrations will encourage your child to pronounce object names. Finish-the-word exercises help with beginning, middle, and ending sounds. With a pencil or crayon, and perhaps just a bit of coaching from you, your child will practice and learn for many happy hours. Its slim, 32-page size is great for packing into totes and luggage.
