Series: Wipe-clean phonics
By Mairi Mackinnon
WARNING! Not suitable for children under 36 months because of small parts. Choking hazard. Ink from pen may not be washable.
Children can practise the sounds and shapes of letters ‘j’, ‘q’, ‘v’, ‘w’, ‘x’, ‘y’ and ‘z’ as taught in schools in this fun phonics book. Activities include drawing v-shaped fangs onto a family of vampires, spotting everything beginning with ‘q’ and using ‘x’ to mark the spot on a treasure map. Then they can wipe the page clean and try again!
