As a teacher, I cannot simply go to a shop and buy what I came for. In my case it is impossible. I usually mosey on down the shelves and seek for inspiration to my classroom. Few years ago, I was shopping and I took a look at TKMaxx’s books for children. For those who are not yet familiar with the shop – it has a great collection of games, toys and books in English. (if only teacher’s salary was higher…)
If you do not want to spend your money on extra book, I will kindly revise you my article on creating books on your own.
Well, I was staring at these adorably colourful books with (almost) my mouth open, when I noticed the real treasure. A series of five books with very vivid covers and nice creatures drawn on it. ‘The Schoolies’ said the title on the cover. Books published by Priddy Books with characters created by Ellen Crimi-Trent.
I bought the pack happily and almost immediately went home to get to know these cheerful characters better.
Before you read about the books from this pack, take a sneak peek at the incredibly charming animals who play main role in the Schoolies stories.
Spencer a very sporty owl with good management skills
Winston a competitive worm who can always count on his brother Wally.
Hayden Hoot a Math genius
Mrs Meow the class teacher
Kitty a nature lover who likes playing the piano
Larry Einstein a helpful lightbulb
Colby Spencer’s older brother who is good at machines
C.J. Crawley a very talented painter
Sid and Suzy cute snails’ siblings
Zippy a friendly squirrel
Lydia and Leeza two sweet ladybirds
Wally a wise worm, Winston’s brother
Chip a shy but very talented singer
Mrs Hedge a music teacher
Are you ready for their stories? Are you curious what stories are inside these awesome books?
