Did you know that today is National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Children’s Day 2014? Check out the ad below!
In acknowledgement of NATSICD I thought I would introduce to the latest release from Indigenous publishing house Magabala.
Publisher: Magabala Books
Look and See is great for beginning readers. My five year old has just started on home readers, and was able to independently read it after hearing it a couple of times. The text contains a great percentage of easily recognised high frequency words (“sight words”) which will help beginners to experience early success. The rhyme structure also assists with text prediction.
Author/Illustrator Shane Morgan is a descendent of the Yorta Yorta peoples of Victoria. His cheeky illustrations will get a giggle out of young readers.
