Toddler Book Series

A gentle introduction into English. Focusing on a few key phrases and a range of vocabulary.

​One of a kind

This series of 6 books are truly unique. Each copy is completed by the student, completing all pages for their own situation. For example, in the I like (food) lesson, if the student does not like any of the food, they do not have to indicate so. In addition, each book is personalized with some pages containing the students's own face, one of the YouTube videos will feature their face parts which they have to identify and we supply a front cover for each book which includes the faces of all the students in one class. 

​Real world English

​The content of the series was researched in real world situations; my children were of kindergarten age while I was writing the book and I would note down everything that they wanted to tell me. I then tried to take the more simple/useful structures to include in the book. We believe that we shouldn't be telling students what to say, but giving them the tools to allow them to say what they want.

​YouTube

All lessons have an accompanying YouTube video. They are free to watch and each video is between 7 to 15 minutes, with whole book reviews running to over an hour at times. The videos serve two purposes. The first is to review lesson content through repetition. Although material is repeated, it is presented in a new, fun way so the children don't get bored. The second is to act as homework practice. Almost all of the worksheets contain a quiz that can only be completed by watching YouTube. All the main language is also written into the videos, allowing for basic reading.

​Administration

​Each book is sold as a PDF. The pages need to be printed at your school and handed to students. After one book is finished, they can be bound into a simple book. We provide a free flashcard set (as a digital copy that needs to be printed and laminated), word file containing convenient lesson handouts for parents, alphabet and phonics worksheets that can be printed on the back of worksheets, and 3 Halloween and Christmas lessons.
