Testimonials

We, at Crisis, love your books! We have used them in many ways in the classroom and recently our students enjoyed writing their own narrative. For some, it was their first experience of writing a story. I look forward to using lots more of your books in the future. Thanks so much!

Annette Less, Basic Skills Tutor, Crisis

Our students love your books – in fact they wear out faster than any other books in the library due to heavy use.

Elaine Andrews - Learning Resources Centre Manager

We bought the complete King Street Collection as well as the separate packs for Set One and Two. We're finding them brilliantly useful, volunteers and students are really taking to them.

Tracy Bose, CEO of Got to Read

King Street: What a breath of fresh air! Beginning readers with simple, easy to access words that still deal with adult themes. A wonderful set of books, which my ESOL group are thoroughly enjoying

Karen Unwin

As a Librarian, it is great to find some reading books that are aimed at entry level adult students, with pictures to help tell the story, along with engaging and humorous plot lines. 

Susanna Carter

Thank you Catherine (and all you folks at Gatehouse) for all of the great work which you do to promote and develop the literacy skills of some of the most vulnerable and oft forgotten people in society.

Liz Bale

I am writing to thank you for recommending Yes We Can Read... I really do feel this has been life-changing for Christopher.
