These Montessori blocks are perfect for beginners. Your child will love to twist the blocks to discover new letters and many words, especially rhyming words. The block allows all 5 vowels plus 13 different consonants for voice practice, so that your little reader can read 80 words repeatedly. All words are in the dictionary (some are not so well known, some are phonetic)! An interesting tool can enhance and improve children's self-confidence in reading.
