    At Home With Sounds and Rhymes is full of learning activities for young children to do at home. If offers a variety of matching activities to help children to learn to read. Sounds are important because they link how we say words to how we write them on a page. Rhymes are important because they show there are patterns of sounds associated with patterns of letters. The activities help children grasp individual letter shapes, associate letters with sounds, look at beginnings, endings and rhyming endings. The fun illustrations encourage using a pencil in a controlled way and improve hand-eye coordination. Useful tips support adults so that they can encourage learning gently - plus there are more than enough funky stickers to reward your child as they complete each activity! This book is ideal to build confidence in reading for a child's first years at school.
