MY BIRTHDAY. SELF PROTECTION
The First Readings series helps children acquire the habit of reading in their early childhood. It is in this stage of life when children start to discover and enjoy written words; it is thus the perfect moment for them to become good readers. This series achieves that aim by stimulating childrens curiosity about language by means of readings full of textual and visual information, along with activities to be done before, while and after the reading.
