As they go through the mazes, your pre-readers can see the difference between capital and lowercase letters.

This will help them learn to identify letters by their shapes. By doing this, your kids will develop visual discrimination skills and pre-reading skills.

These skills are essential as your preschoolers and kindergarteners learn how to read and write.
