My eldest is learning to read and as a result her younger sister is i king up on words and letters. I wanted something for her to help her learn her ABC, so she can feel just like her big sister.
I am aware of lots of DVDs on the market to do this, but they all seem pitched at learning phonics, or the alphabet and most don't seem to have much of story behind it, this means my yougest gets up and walks off because she cannot engage with the content.
I put the DVD on for the girls last night and sat with them reminiscing my childhood watching Sooty. Sooty was one of my favourite characters as a child and I think I still hold a soft spot. The DVD follows Sooty, Sweep, Soo and Richard embark on a letter learning adventure. Sooty ABC also supports the early years curriculum whilst encouraging a fun story.
The girls sat quietly and watched the DVD. They then started giggling, the big belly giggles. They become engrossed by the DVD and story, especially when Richard has a b on his head. This has become a joke in our house now. The girls watched the whole DVD, laughing away and saying the alphabet.
If you are looking for a DVD to help your children learn the alphabet, and letter sounds whilst having fun then I can highly recommend Sooty ABC. It would make a wonderful alternative Easter gift.
