Our Literacy List of Books and Resources  - Page 1
You can find out more about each book by clicking on each link but . . .
when you want to buy a book or resources you'll need to order it through our our Wish List on Amazon.co.uk and not via the links in the list below. Just go Amazon Wish List for Young African Learners and add the books or resources to your shopping basket. At the checkout you can choose to have the books delivered to your home or to our UK agent who will send them to us via our Pilot Post Scheme at no cost to you.  
The right-hand column lists ideas for resources to put in the books bags. These suggestions are over and above  puzzles, word searches and so on. We are currently working on these list as well as adding them to our Amazon Wish List.
