This is a good product that helps a child automatically recognize thirty sight words. The flash cards are a great addition and they also offer some great advice on teaching sight words. The only flaw we found in this product is the lack of color; the illustrations could use more color. Perhaps you could “pretend” this is a coloring book and let your child add some much needed color.
Sight word books help children learn to automatically recognize high frequency words and develop a sight word vocabulary.
