This set of books cost me almost $200.00 sixteen years ago. I do believe they are much cheaper now. I have even seen them in the library. If you want to try them out. But I like that I own this set.
These books are great. I have used them with my three girls and now with my son. There is a book with each letter of the alphabet. Including a book called "My First Book". Each book is about each letter of the alphabet. Each book is about a girl or a boy in it with the letter of the book from the alphabet.
The boy or girl in the books collect things that start with the letter that the book is about and the boy or girl places everything into his or her box. It is the same theme for each book.
This set comes with flash cards with pictures and words from the words in the book. This set is hard covered with fun colourful pictures and big letters.
