        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.

        The backing tracks are great. Favourites with my pupils (especially for the boys) are Big Blue Bear, Mild Thing, Chunk of Funk and Sunday Morning.
        Occasionally the cd tracks go a little too quickly for the slower learner, so teachers need to use them judiciously and be careful not to de-motivate pupils.
