Spelling Time is a fun way to teach children how to spell. Not only are they learning to spell but also learning about instruments, animals, geography, and creative writing as well!
In this peek inside video I am comparing and showing the differences between the books.

Level A ~ ages 3-7: this one is for two, meaning your child will need help from mom, an older sibling, etc.
For each letter of the alphabet, there are five different words: a name, descriptive word, animal, instrument, and place.
Back of the book, there are 8 pages of creative writing prompts and place to illustrate. Your child will dictate sentences, stories, poems, etc.
In the story prompt section, there is a 6th-word added (this word will eventually be fully incorporated in Level C.
Also in the back of Level a: 4 word search pages, 1 page of circle your favorite words, 1 page of write your favorite words, get creative, and Write a Silly Story, lastly there are pages to draw favorite instruments, animals, and places
Level B ~ has the same five words as level A , in this level the child will complete the spelling words for example with the word Fiona - F___A - so the child will add the ion.
Like Level A there is a 6th word in the writing prompt pages. This time there are 8 writing prompt pages in a row and 4 more scattered throughout the back (in my April 26th, 2016 printing), there are also word searches and other activities in the back.
Level C really ramps things up! There is more writing. That 6th word that was in the Creative Writing Prompts in the previous levels is now fully incorporated adding the 6th word to each spelling page.
The child will write 5 facts about animals, look up words in the dictionary, draw places, and now every letter in the alphabet A-Z is in the Creative Writing Prompt pages in the back.
Question: Why the same words in each level?
Answer: In level A they are being introduced with the words. The child is not expected to memorize them all but to be introduced.
Level B - the child is interacting more with the words
Level C they are fully engaging by looking words up, researching, finding descriptive words for animals and instruments and so forth.
