When children learn letter sounds, they're on their way to becoming readers. And the more fun they have as they learn, the faster their skills will grow! These word searches turn learning letter sounds into a game. Each puzzle presents just one letter or sound, like "baby" and "plate" for LONG A; "city" and "dance" for SOFT C; and "jab," "jam," and "jelly" for J words. Adorable line drawings add to the appeal. And, of course, the completed word search appears at the back-just in case new readers need a little help!
