The emphasis of this book is to learn the letter B and its corresponding sound. There are 26 letters in the alphabet and there are more than 40 different sounds. If there were an individual sound for each letter, learning to read them would be easier but some letters make more than one sound. The letter B is one of 16 Constant Consonants, which means it is a letter that produces only one sound and can be learned more easily.
Bear and Beetle was the first book put together by the Helpful Villagers. It is a simple story of Bear and his friend Beetle going on a little boat ride. What an adventure they will have!
