3. "I can’t say enough about this CD and book! I started playing the Letter Sounds CD for my son when he was about 2. He loved it. Every time we drove in the car, he wanted to hear it. It’s got a fun beat (easy for parents to listen to!) and a great book with lots of color. In fact, I had to order extra books, because his friends wanted to have their own when they were in the car."
