Books for Nursery Schools
Finding books with suitable simple text for Nursery age foreign learners is difficult as much text is written with the native-speaker adult in mind assuming that she will act as the mediator explaining the text to the child. The selection does not include the well-known favourites like Spot, Maisy and Dick Bruna books, as these popular series are readily available outside the UK.
The Nursery or Pre-School selection, which can be found within the issue 10 suppliment of REALBOOK NEWS on the archive page, is divided into two sections of books:
Starters Books for children with very little spoken English with minimal text, the story being carried in the pictures.
Talkers Books for children who know some rhymes and games and use some English within the classroom.
