    Absolutely wonderful compilation! My son has the Fridge Phonics which is similar to the Letter Factory Phonics. At five, he still enjoys playing with it. Though now, he is actually spelling simple words with the letters. He also still enjoys the book “Brown Bear, What Do You See?” We actually read it a few nights ago.
