I Can Write: In Town by Simon Abbott


I Can Write: In Town by Simon Abbott

This title features child-friendly 'wipe-clean' spreads allow children to recognise and practise writing first words. Each book features six scenes containing between four and six everyday words. The special pen and wipe-clean element allow children to first copy and then write each word, again and again. The colourful design treatment makes these interactive books highly appealing.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
