"Based on the best research on how children develop reading skills, this twelve-book box set introduces a carefully selected progression of letter sounds to help build a young reader's confidence. With repeated examples of the letter sounds being focused on, as well as 'words to learn' and 'words to sound out,' these books will readily appeal to the Backyardigans' audience of beginning readers as they capture all of the familiar elements from the hit TV show."
