Phonobet

Come and meet the Phonobet, old Alpha Betty’s twin,

The set of all the sounds you use when waggling your chin.

Phonobet is a modern-day, Australian answer to Dr Seuss’s ABC. This very clever rhyming story takes an onomatopoeic romp through the 44 phonemes of Australian (and British) English, comparing sounds to trees, bees, trains, robots, monkeys, pirates and more. The text aligns with primary-school phonics programs and could be used by educators in this field, but is equally successful as a fun read-aloud book for parents.

Children will enjoy Kim Drane’s bold, colourful and fun-filled illustrations, which pop on the page. Written by Kathy Weeden and read by Peter Houghton
