Reviewed by Anne Boiling for Readers' Favorite

"Magic Letters: The Keys to the World of Words" is sure to please your preschooler. The first thing I noticed was the way the book was bound. The glossy cover makes it easy to remove little finger prints. The bright colors are sure to attract the attention of little ones. The author includes a 'How you can help' page. She suggests that you read this book to your child several times, and then randomly open the book to see if your child recognizes any letters. Soon your child will be reading this book on his or her own. This book can also be utilized in a classroom.

The author has carefully chosen words and illustrations that a child will connect to. The sentences are simple. “I see the alligator. I see the apple.” Then she switches to “I like…” The repetition allows your child to grasp the words by recognition. The pages are not cluttered. Too often a letter book is jumbled. My three year old grandson loves this book. It is easy to recommend this book to parents and educators.
