I love all of these ABC snacks! So cute plus bonus of having little teaching tips and most of them are easy enough to do on their own. We will definitely be making many of these.

I have a daughter with dyslexia. I have looked at all your books and would love to use all about reading. She is a slow reader and I read with her. We are a home school family. I was told to hold her back in second grade and I made the choice to homeschool. She didn’t need to be held back. The school was slow in helping her with her dyslexia.

I am a Nana homeschooling our Grandson with the help of Papa. Our youngest is 31. Anyways, I was really glad to see this website a while back and we have decided to use the reading/phonics program. He is very much into the reading and trying sounding out words. Thank you for making our life much easier.
