I bought this because I remember, as a teenager, listening to my brother and sisters learn to read through this program. I went to public school until 8th grade and learned to read by memorizing words. Then I would listen to and watch my siblings use this and I learned my phonics!
My son, 3.5 years when we started this, LOVES this program! He enjoys the music and sings along. He loves all the colorful pictures and is really learning!
Great product! It provides the perfect way for preschoolers to get excited about school and learning through great activities and music! I have used it for two of my kiddos and plan on using it for the next two!
I've been a fan of Sing, Spell, Read and Write since I taught elementary school. I am happy with my purchase. I am missing the large alphabet cards. Didn't bother since I had some from previous years. I'm more excited about the older levels but I would recommend.
We have just been using this product for a short while, but even my two-year-old wants to do it. She sings the songs right along with her preschool aged brother. The songs are catchy and fun. This program is very "age appropriate.". As a former kindergarten teacher, I feel that this program dies a good job to prepare a little one for kindergarten without pressure.
