Milo’s Birthday Surprise takes children on a journey through the letters of the alphabet, highlighting the sound of each letter. Becoming aware of the link between sounds and letters is the first step in learning to read. Milo the monkey introduces his friends as he invites them to his birthday party.


Entertaining illustrations allow children to search for clues about what birthday surprises are in store for Milo. 


The introduction of sounds in Milo's Birthday Surprise is not in alphabetical order. It follows the order of introduction and sequence of the letters and sounds in Stages 1 to 4 of the Little Learners Love Literacy program. Every page is full of alliteration - Felix the frog flps and flops with four fat fish, Kylie the koala practises karate
