Giveaway: Sound Stories Complete Set

The first step in learning to read and write effectively is to develop awareness of the 43 sounds (phonemes) that form Australian spoken English.

A new set of four beautifully illustrated hardcover story books called Sound Stories by Barbara Murray, provides 43 stories to introduce the 43 sounds to young children.

Sound Stories is perfect for parents and grandparents to introduce the sounds to early childhood aged children and as a teacher's resource in schools and early childhood centres. This set of books is unique in that it provides a story for every sound of Australian spoken English in the one set of books.

'I designed each Sound Story so that delightful, engaging illustrations will entice children to observe, imagine, predict, draw conclusions and create a possible storyline as part of an open discussion with others present, before the story is read to them.'

Discover more about this beautiful series from our KBR review of the complete series.
