The authors

How we teach our children is constantly being refined, changed and improved. The teaching strategies in this new edition are based on the latest and best research on how children learn, and they match the playful ways that children’s minds work, too. By drawing on visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and tactile learning channels with equal strength, Letterland readily imparts essential phonic knowledge and skills in very natural ways, enabling children to quickly develop into confident readers and writers from a very early age. What I find has never changed is that Letterland is a proven and powerful motivator for children to learn, succeed and gain a lifelong love of reading.

Lyn Wendon Originator of Letterland

As educators and parents, we all want to prepare children for our fast-moving, technologica lly advancing world. But we also want them to be allowed to play, sing and laugh as children are wired to do. Children’s play is increasingly understood to be just as important to becoming complete, successf ul human beings as is the best academic training we can provide. I love seeing children in Letterland classroo ms developing both phonic skills and an enjo yment and confidence in learning to read that turns them into youngsters who love reading to learn.
