Excellent reading fun and English learning

Bully Goat Grim, Rapunzel and the Seven Dwarfs and The Uglified Ducky by Willy Claflin are some excellent bookRapunzelAndTheSevenDwarfss that are very funny and a great English language learning tool. The author narrates in his fun French Canadian accent and makes many humourous grammar mistakes. 

It’s actually fun to spot the grammar mistakes and, if you are a teacher, have your students rewrite one or two pages. It focuses on the simple tenses, subject/verb agreement and pronouns. Children don’t know they are learning, they are too busy laughing.

You can find these narrated eBooks at Tumbletime Books, which is also available through your local library.
