Cats, Hats & Hippos
Speaking & Listening
Adventures in Literacy

for ages 3 to 5
by Ruth Thomson & Pie Corbett

Creative ideas for developing speaking & writing:
- creative pictures to look at & stimulate talk
- exploring sounds & rhymes
- speaking in sentences & asking questions
- support for storytelling
- includes comparing, categorising, directing & describing


This is a fantastic book to enjoy with your kids. The pages are colourful & there are loads of things to talk about on each page. At the bottom are some starting points, e.g I-spy games, rhyming games, questions to think about

My 2 daughters (4 & 6 years old) spent about an hour just looking at a page and talking, often going off on a tangent but making links between the picture and their own experiences.

Pages include: sounds all around, rhyme time, who's at the door?, pick a pair, bird spotting, growing up, where are the animals?, how do you do it?, whose is this?, what's happening here? and a story map. There are some further ideas for each page at the back of the book which can also be used beyond the recommended age range.
