Literacy and ESOL Readers from Gatehouse Books

New Literacy and ESOL Readers from Gatehouse Books

About

Gatehouse Books introduce 2 new series for Literacy and ESOL learners, printed with full colour photographs in a comic book style.

 
Walt's Adventure Series

Walt’s Adventures Series is a fabulous addition to our collection of reading books for new readers. Walt is someone we all know. He’s our friend, brother, cousin, father, grandfather or neighbour. He could live on any street, in any village, town or city. Walt is a familiar character who we all recognise.

Developed by Jennie Cole for adults who are learning to read, or who are learning English as a second language, the series offers an insight into life in the UK and provides useful material for building vocabulary around everyday situations.

There are 4 titles in the Walt’s Adventures Series:

  • The Nosy Neighbour
  • Walt’s Busy Gardening Day
  • Walt Goes Shopping
  • Walt’s Bumper Fruit Crop

 
What's Your Story

What’s Your Story? Series is another great addition to our range of reading books for new readers. When we meet someone and ask “Where are you from?” or “What do you enjoy doing?” what we are really asking is “What’s your story?” When we start to share our story with others, we can begin to celebrate differences and recognise how much we all have in common.

The series comprises 4 books written by Jennie Cole with Ana, Kisanet, Ousmane and Sadjo all sharing a story of their own. This series is an ideal starting point to encourage conversation and invite others to share their story.

There are 4 titles in the What’s Your Story? Series:

  • What’s Your Story, Ana?
  • What’s Your Story, Kisanet?
  • What’s Your Story, Ousmane?
  • What’s Your Story, Sadjo?

Individually priced at £5.95 or buy the full series of 4 books for only £22.00.
