other phonics programs have come and gone. Play 'n Talk® has
truly stood the test of time.
by Mary Pride, MAY/JUNE 2003 PRACTICAL HOMESCHOOLING
years ago I wrote about how
Play ’n Talk
(PNT for short), a homeschool classic that has been around
for over 40 years, had leapfrogged into the 21st century.
So what can I say now about the brand-new revision of
this program? First, a word of explanation. “Classic”
Play ’n Talk is still available. That was actually the
“new” version of three years ago. What I’m
about to describe is the completely up-to-date,
mouth-watering new Deluxe edition—the
one in the fancy plastic suitcase, with everything so
neatly organized it will make those of us who used the
original PNT drool with desire. In their advertising,
Play ’n Talk claims, “Most of our students, after graduating
from our program, read and spell at a college level.” I
have to tell you this is the sober truth."
