Storybooks for Beginners

Simple storybooks that have worked well in my classes

 

These are some of the most popular books in my beginners classes (years 1 and 2).  All the books are linked to Amazon so you can look at them more closely and  read the reviews.

For some of the books you will also find copyable teaching units designed by me or by students of my course “Teaching Literature and Culture”.
