The DSCF are pushing for the Letter and Sounds initiative to cover the whole 0-5 age range and this series answers that remit! These four books are differentiated to meet the particular developmental stages of the framework and clearly linked to the developmental statements, so they can be used in all sorts of schools and settings. They offer appropriate activities in four age bands, closely matched to the EYFS, and giving children a thorough grounding in the essential skills they need to become good readers.
