The Lettermen

Last night our youngest daughter brought home a reading book that had really caught her interest.  She read it to me and spent as much time talking about the pictures and giggling at the "Lettermen" as she did reading the words of the story!

On each page, some of the Lettermen spell out something that is happening on that page...

And at the start of some of the pages, one of the Lettermen represented the first letter of the first sentence!  This particularly amused our daughter!      Although our daughter is reading well herself now, these books would also be great for beginner readers, with an adult reading the main story,  and the child reading the sight words as spelled out by the Lettermen.  

These books are about the same size as the Mr Men books, and there are 12 altogether in the series. 

It's always nice to find new and interesting books - especially kids books .

What new books have you discovered through your child?  Are there any you can recommend?


  1. This series looks really exciting! I think I might check them out. I am your newest follower from Boost my Blog. I'd love for you to follow back at and/or

  2. Those are really fun!! I love them!! I have two little girls learning to read and they would really enjoy the mix of mom reading and child reading. Thanks for sharing! And thanks for following my blog and your encouraging words. :)

  3. I remember the Mr Men books, my daughter used to collect them, together Little Miss books. Really entertaining.

    I also used to love playing Yahtzee. Haven't played for years.
