"Learning the alphabet with rock rhythms helps energize the extensive repetition needed to master the naming of letters and sounds, recognizing word families, decoding, and building simple sentences. The colorful, read-a-long booklet connects sounds to print with practice drills and word games. Use this musical tool for added variety to pre-reading activities in learning centers, small groups, or at home with parent and child." – Parents' Guide to Children's Media Award
"I can't say enough about this CD and book! I started playing the Letter Sounds CD for my son when he was about 2. He loved it. Every time we drove in the car, he wanted to hear it. It's got a fun beat (easy for parents to listen to!) and a great book with lots of color. In fact, I had to order extra books, because his friends wanted to have their own when they were in the car." – parent
"I purchased Rock 'N Learn Letter Sounds for my two year old daughter. She loved following along in the book to the very catchy songs. There are many colorful pictures to hold her interest. Also, it has a quick pace to keep her interested, but not too fast for her to keep up. She learned her letters and all their sounds before she turned three." – parent
