A5 shared-reading format.

This Aesop’s fable is full of delight. We are taken in by the Fox just as much as Crow.

Even though this story is about a fox and a crow, human emotions run high in this story, teaching the young reader valuable life lessons. This is Aesop at its best.

Henny Penny partner reading
Look inside

A5 shared-reading format.

Henny Penny takes us on a roller-coaster ride that enables the reader to feel what it is like to be thought of as dinner.

However, we are also given an insight into how the fox thinks, although our sympathies will probably not overcome our preference for wanting the well-being of the feathered characters to have precedence.

The imaginative language usage brings this story to life in full first-person drama.

Three Billy Goats Gruff - partner reading in turn
Look inside

This much-loved story will not only capture the imagination of its readers from the first encounter, it will entice them back many times to re-experience the fun.

The colourful characters not only give permission to be LOUD, they encourage it. Quietly alongside this loudness come the educational matters of promoting fluency, vocabulary and self-expression.

The cliché will entertain both reader and listener.
