“Moon, Monkey, Mouse!” Each child learns at a different pace, especially when it comes to letter sounds. This is why it’s essential we keep it fun and light-hearted. In this My Busy Bots bag little ones are introduced to amusing characters and images, which will help them identify the letter sound for each card, and place that letter on its matching card.
This activity is suitable for little ones from 4 - 6 years old. As all children develop in their own time, this is a guideline and may vary with your child.
