Every time I pull out this book I thank the stars for having happened upon it at a bookstore a couple of years ago. Actually I found the first part, and was thrilled to see that there was a sequel. Although the stories are different from what you'd usually find in books for learning (a couple are cold so the husband goes to buy a heater and the heater causes a fire in the house, a woman goes on a job interview and the interview is inappropriate with her), the themes only give opportunities to talk about different issues, use a lot of vocabulary, and, most important, keep the attention of the students. It's not gooy-sweet like most esl books; it focuses on realistic situations, but with simple drawings that encourage the learner to create whatever conversation s/he thinks might be taking place. I print out specific vocabulary for each unit and go over the words with my students before looking at the pictures, so that they then have the tools to use to expand on what they see. It works really well. Each unit has a one-page situation that is followed by five pages of activities that are well thought-out and useful. I encourage esl teachers to try out this book and its predecessor.
