The new Liz and Joe books have gone down really well with our ESOL learners and the books were all borrowed in a couple of days from the College library. 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 plotlines. In particular enjoyed reading ‘Liz goes to the hairdressers’; Joe’s facial expressions are hilarious whilst he is waiting for Liz to decide what haircut to have. Well done Jennie!
I use the Liz and Joe books with my adult learners. They love reading about the characters and find them funny. The photos make for a realistic read, allowing my learners to identify with the characters. They are particularly fond of Joe's Surprise, as they loved seeing photos of the market.
I love how colourful your books are. English is my second language, so I have a bit of personal interest in library ESOL resources. I understand when a person’s vocabulary is limited, the pictures become more important as a way of making sense of the story. Your books get the learner involved and able to absorb the vocabulary by the use of such lively images.
As a second language learner, rather than trying to learn from plain text books, I would buy a magazine with glossy picture stories that grabbed my attention more. I found these really helped me to engage with the book. This is why I love the comic book format of your books.
Well done and keep on writing.
