It’s easy to be overlooked or ignored if you’re quiet and well behaved like Little E. Still, his classmates—an alphabet of rosy cheeked, multi-hued lower case letters—learn just how important one silent letter can be. The book’s humorous examples, such as that “cake” sounds much more delicious than “cak,” will delight emergent readers. This is a subtle and accessible lesson in long and short vowels, all wrapped up in a lighthearted story about being heard, even when you don’t say a thing.
