4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for Young Learners! April 26 2003
Format:Paperback
As a teacher of young learners, I struggle to find resources that truly meet the needs of my students, most of whom are just beginning to read and write in English. This book, however, has proven to be a goldmine. Kids and parents alike love the make-and-take books, while I love the flexibility of each unit. I've used the simple drawings to make charts, flashcards, games, etc. to accompany thematic units and have even used a few of the worksheets to review basic concepts with older kids. I'm giving the book a four instead of a five because the unit topics are quite basic. Once students know colors, numbers, letters, shapes, body parts, basic food items, and basic school terminology, this book basically goes back on the shelf until you get your next room full of beginners. But if you teach young learners with limited language skills, this book is a must have.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable resourse July 30 2004
By J. Marren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently taught ESL in China for a few weeks and found this book incredibly useful. Although marketed as being for grades 1-4, I found this book helpful for even high school students--it depends more on the level of language proficiency than anything else. For example, I used the "parts of the body" page to review what my students already knew, and then they filled in more complicated words such as thigh, shoulder, ankle, etc. The money page has very realistic drawings of the various coins, all of which were new to my students. The food pages were very helpful before moving on to more complicated lessons on ordering in a restaurant. A great book for a modest price!

4.0 out of 5 stars Beginning ESL Sept. 14 2005
By Violet P. Ocampo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book is more for children, there are some pages I was able to use for my adult ESL course. There are some nice diagrams along with good ideas on how to begin a level one class.

3.0 out of 5 stars For US students only! July 8 2007
By A. Leigh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I teach English to children in France and this book has very little content geared for my needs and not worth the $12 I spent. I love to teach with mini-books that I create myself, so I was drawn to the title. However, I found the ones offered here very dull, i.e. copying number words, rather than engaging their creativity by having them illustrate the number word. Other mini-books teach the Pledge of Allegiance, This Land is Your Land, and writing the alphabet - also not appropriate for my needs. But as someone who is always looking for appropriate clip art for my lessons, I agree with the other reviewers that the illustrations are appealing and helpful for teaching basic vocabulary, and can be used in many ways.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very helpful for very beginners March 2 2009
By Ibrahim A. Al Droushi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Well, I am a teacher from Oman, Middle East, where Arabic language is the official language. Actually, I liked the product because it is very useful for beginners since it has so many pictures which motivate and help the learners to understand the subjects. It has very clear instructions. The pictures are not colored which will help the teacher to use different pictures for different purposes in teaching. I can use for learners in grade 1 and 2 only.

Thank you.
