Match the words that sound the same. When children recognize words that rhyme they’ve mastered a critical auditory pre-reading skill. When the two puzzle pieces are connected, the printed words are side-by-side, reinforcing the awareness that groups of letters are associated with the rhyming sounds. This game promotes that knowledge with familiar words and appealing pictures. Matching house to mouse and truck to duck offers reinforcing repetition in a game that everyone enjoys. 25 puzzle pairs. Ages 3 and up.
