    It is better to do the Doman Reading cards between birth-age 3, and then introduce phonics. But most likely, you will find by then that your child already learnt how to pronounce the words based on the Doman method. For more questions and support, please visit and join the "unofficial" global support group of Glenn Doman and other children learning tools at Child Brain Development http://www.childbrain.org

    Can anyone tell me the difference between Letterland and Jolly Phonics? How do I decide which one will suit my child?

    Thanks Rani. I guess I'll stick to whatever offered by the pre-school that my child will be attending.

    Earlier I bought my daughter a Letterhand ABC book. When she saw an "h" somewhere, she'd say "hairy hat man". Now I understand that the phonics system is basically used for introducing the different sounds of the letters. I think I don't need to rush it.
