The animals return with yet another fun-learning book, qThe Book of The Animals - Alphabet Togetherq for young children to learn their alphabet with their favourite friends!This year, more than ever, parents want to buy decent gifts for their little ones rather than something which is going to give them 15 minutes entertainment on Christmas Day and never gets played with or looked at again. Parents want something to capture their children's imagination instead.Wishing for a Fun-Learning Christmas? Don't look further! It's going to be a qBook of The Animalsq Christmas. The popular bilingual children's books series is indeed expected to be one of Amazon and other leading book retailers' top sellers this Christmas, thanks to its low price tag (less than 10 in paperback for a bilingual book and less than 2 in eBook format) and mainly its universal appeal. The collection of seven books about the children's favourite animals who, episode after episode, refuse to do what they are told looks set to make it as unexpected contenders for this year's Christmas bestseller.Written by author and journalist J.N. Paquet and handmade illustrated, the delightful qBook of The Animalsq series tells the story of what happens when the animals in the stories (a frog, a cow, a fox, a cat, a dog...), like many young children, don't want to wash, eat, sleep, go to school, share, take their medicine and get vaccinated.The series was created with the aim to help both parents and children to discover the benefits of washing, eating, etc., in a really fun and educational manner. And the subjects are virtually endless!The books are also bilingual, which means that parents will enjoy the teaching and the interactivity they can gain from reading them with their children. There is something special about these books and one can only imagine how much it could benefit to so many children, both for the message they convey (wash, eat, sleep, etc.) and for the bilingual function of the books. That's what J.N. Paquet calls qFun-Learning.qqThe books are very suitable both for reading to young children and for older children to use to learn to read in both languages. The repetitive structure is supportive of children learning new words and the illustrations work well alongside the text to help understanding of unfamiliar words. I can easily imagine young children demanding repeat readings and enjoying learning the text by heart as many children do with favourite stories. Children learning to make up and write their own stories might well want to write a personalised version, using the structure as a prop. The stories would work well both in the home and in the classroom.q --Dr Raymonde Sneddon, Research Fellow at the University of East London.qThe Book of The Animals - The Beautiful Collectionq by J.N.
