THE ALEXANDER BOOKS

ABOUT THE SERIES

This series of books is written to allow children to learn to read through rhyme. The simple style allows children to sound words out and recognise them. There is regular repetition of words which allows children to become familiar with larger words, having to read them more often. There may be a number of words that they have not read before or do not recognise – this is intended to spark conversation. The books have bright illustrations for the younger reader which are eye catching and detailed.

Christopher Quirk originates from the UK and has a background in design. Christopher has a young daughter who has been his inspiration for this book, enabling him to read her bedtime stories written by him.
