A Happy New Year to everyone.
We hope this year will be a better year for everyone than 2016!
With our little mouse helpers, we have started off the New Year working on several new ranges of early years books, the first of which has just come hot off the presses!

New Lexie and Friends Phonics Books Set 3

Lexie and Friends Phonics Books Set 3

Lexie and Friends Phonics Books Set 3

This new third set of Lexie and Friends Phonics Books compliments the two sets we launched at the end of last year. The Lexie and friends book range introduce a delightful group of mouse characters that young readers will come to recognise and enjoy their many adventures.

These books are designed for all children to read by themselves or learn with adult supervision. Each book is written in a unique font, which allows all children including dyslexic and reluctant readers to read them. Children are encouraged to follow the adventures of Lexie and friends as they take young children on various adventures throughout the range.

All the books are colour banded and fit in with the phonic progression suggested by the UK Government’s ‘Letters and Sounds’ document (2007 DfES) and the most popular coloured reading band levels used in Key Stage 1 classrooms in the UK.

We have been creating children’s products for over 20 years and have designed for major UK and overseas publishers and toy manufacturers. These are the first in a range of our own books, which we will be offering to both education and retail outlets.

Where to buy the books!

The books are now available to buy from our distribution partner Bigjigs Toys here and TTS Educational supplies.

Exhibitions

Paul Clarke our Sales Director will be at the London Toy Fair from the 24th-26th January 2017 and the Nuremberg Toy Fair 1st-5th February 2017 in Germany. Paul can be found on the stand of our distribution partner Bigjigs Toys .

Review of Lexie and Friends, Phonic Book Sets

December 19th, 2016

Many thanks to Ameeta (and children), for taking the time to review the first of our Lexie and Friends Phonic Books. They seem to be a hit with both Ameeta and her children. We hope they will enjoy the new set of Lexie and Friends out this week!

Lexie and Friends - Phonic Books - SET 1 & SET 2

Lexie and Friends Phonics Books Set 1

Lexie and Friends Phonics Books Set 1

While I am thinking about it, the books that you gave us to look at…Lexie and Friends, Phonic Books, SET 1 & SET 2… The boys love them and so do I.

Lexie and Friends Phonics Book Set 2

Lexie and Friends Phonics Book Set 2

I really like how they follow the reading band scheme at school, as I never really know which books go in which band!

They are also nice and fun to read. Josh is really wanting to learn about the characters and follows the stories well.

I find the books from school are either so repetitive that they are boring or the stories don’t make sense – often it feels like sentences are just random words put together! So it’s nice to have books that Josh can read that make sense, have a story etc., etc.

Josh can read both pink band books by himself, which surprised me, as he hasn’t done that with the school books he brings home. I don’t know whether that’s the font or just the fact they are better written books!

I wonder whether the school books have been banded by the teachers rather than having been written for the specific band. It definitely feels like these books have been written for the specific bands and it makes a big difference.

I also like how the books have a theme but the pages are different. Often you get books that have the same sentences on each page with just one word different. These books are not like that and use a different mix of words throughout the book and so increases learning.

I can’t comment on the font other than Josh seems to find it easier to read.

Illustrations are great, Josh loves the characters.

So overall excellent books, no negative points that I can think of.

I will take them to school at some point and show them to Joshans teacher.

Our latest range of Books, Muriel’s Murals have just been printed and are hot off the press! We have had quite a bit of press coverage over the past weeks!

The books are created by Dean Wilkinson and Rebecca Morton and combined with the Dyslexie font our aim is to encourage dyslexic, non-dyslexic, SEN and reluctant readers to enjoy the chaotic adventures that unfold in Muriel’s Murals…

Muriel is a kitsch-witch and with her familiar friend, Dalii the anteater, she paints magical murals inside schools. They come alive at night.

The books are for 9+ years and are for both Dyslexic and non-dyslexic children to enjoy. They are designed using the Dyslexie Font B.V. created by Dr Christian Boer.

This special font is designed to make reading a less arduous task for dyslexic, SEN and reluctant readers. This ‘font for all’ encourages all children to read and enjoy books together.
