The fun way to learn to read

Alphablocks is the hit CBeebies TV show that’s helping hundreds of thousands of children learn to read. Who better to show you how words work than the alphabet brought to life? The Alphablocks are 26 living letters who discover that whenever they hold hands and make a word, something magical happens. With adventures, songs and silliness, it’s tons of fun with words – all built on a firm foundation of key phonics skills. Alphablocks on TV, online, in print and interactive is a great way to dive into the world of reading.
