Why are you a vegan? and other rhyming stories for English language learners

The long awaited book of rhyming stories for English language learners is finally here!  Over the years we have had  several requests for a simplification of the vocabulary in some of our rhyming stories for little ones so that they are suitable for people learning English as a foreign language.  This has finally been achieved thanks to Madeleine Lifsey, an English language teacher, who worked with Violet to re-word the stories so that they are all written in present tense, simple vocabulary.  The result is this lovely little book 😀

The five popular rhyming stories, Why are you a vegan?, “I’m not dinner!”, Edmund’s Lunch, bones and teeth and Where are you going Deidra?, adapted for English language learners, can be enjoyed here for free but if you want to use them in the classroom, this fully illustrated paperback is just the thing 😀
