not dumbed down May 31, 2007
See the excerpts at this site to help you make your own decision. The cover has samples of poems. One of the excerpts gives some of the instructions for using the book. This is a creative and entertaining way to teach some phonics. It doesn't teach all of the word families but it does a great job with the ones it does teach. The delightful poems also help with memory skills because the poems are easy to remember. This gives a point of reference. On my website, there is a lot about memory skills for young children.
Not what I hoped for. Mar 13, 2005
I expected a book of poems that helped to teach the top 35 word families would have a vocabulary that was more in line with K-2 readers. Many of these poems will not be within the reading ability of children who are learning word families. I was promised many examples of the word families in each poem. Many of them only have a few family words, certainly not enough to help emergent readers gain any practice, especially with the higher vocabulary used through out the rest of the poem. Some of the poems are delightful, but on the whole, I was dissapointed with the book.
