FLIP a page, find a rhyme!It’s learning through funevery time!Even kids who can’t read a sentence can read one word, or a two-word phrase. By putting their hands on the pages, kids are pulled into the learning dynamic. They make the page turn, and they gain a new word that rhymes with one they just saw.Who can dig a pig in a wig?How’d that pet get wet?Will Pop stop, or will he hop?Are mice on ice twice as nice?With art in the Japanese anime style, each book in this interactive early reading series features a different word family. Word families help children recognize similarities between words that rhyme, and connect words that have matching long, or short, vowel sounds. By mastering this dynamic, kids can read words they don’t necessarily know. Offering a springboard into independent reading, Flip-a-Word takes kids from a single word, to a phrase, to a simple sentence. From there, eye-catching illustrations lead kids to imagine story scenarios only a child could dream up!For kids, parents, and teacherseveryone flips for Flip-a-Word!
