Winnie the Pooh
It's the first day of autumn, and Christopher Robin has written a book of rhymes about Pooh, Tigger, Roo, Piglet, and all of his friends. But when the pages of the book scatter in the wind, everyone must help put it back together again. Luckily, Owl knows all about those squiggly marks called letters. He swoops through the air, teaching Pooh and their friends easy lessons about letter recognition, word formation, and introductory phonics. Now if Pooh can only remember how to rhyme, it just may save the day!

Tips to Try 

Tip: Body Name Game

 How to Play: Begin by modeling how to rhyme. Point to parts of your body, say a rhyming word and your child should say the body part. This puts rhyming into her ears with a visual cue (pointing). If you point to your nose and say rose, he/she will automatically say nose.
