        Easy to understand for all ages. My youngest pupils are 5 years old.
        It helps them to grasp the alphabet.
        As the pupils get older, they seem to relate to the book.
        Some of the songs on the CD are a little fast. Sometimes it would be nice to have a slower speed. Mainly to give confidence.
        Some track don't have an intro.
