This is a child's workbook that covers all the beginning of the year literacy skills. It goes along great with the big book! It includes: letter recognition, letter matching, letter sounds, concepts of print, rhyming, punctuation and capitalization. I also have the children trace the letters and trace and color pictures. This strengthens their fine motor. I personally use it as a beginning of the year guided reading book to go along with the big book. The children love it! The preview pages don't show how the rhyming is incorporated. The story in the trees go along with the rhyming story that is printed at the bottom of the other pages. I have the children highlight the rhyming words as we go along. When the book is done we find the matching rhyming words.
