Fantastic illustrations, and the creation of the families gives a great deal of scope for activities during the course. Inclusion of phonics and reading texts. Explicit inclusion of grammar, in particular verb conjugations, as per the new curriculum. Very detailed lesson plans, ideal for the non-specialist or less confident teacher. I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
The children love the characters because they can relate to their characteristics and stories. As a teacher, I love the lesson plans because they are so well prepared and structured which allows you to concentrate on what matters
