The animals are back! This delightful series tells the story of what happens when the animals, like many young children, don’t want to wash, eat, sleep, behave, share, go to school, take their medicine, or get vaccinated.
In Episode 1, we talk about washing and personal hygiene. Our little readers will find that their favourite animals don’t want to wash: “No, no, no... I don’t want to wash!”... What can we do about it? There is something special about this new book and one can only imagine how much it can benefit to so many children because of the very message it conveys about personal hygiene learning for children. The book will also please all the parents who struggle with their little ones at bath time or at any other moment when personal hygiene is paramount. Written by J.N. PAQUET and illustrated by a new illustrator, Award winner illustrator Lizette Duvenage, "The Book of The Animals - Secong Generation" signals the return of the delightful and popular animals series that already told the story of what happens when the animals, like many young children, don’t want to wash, eat, sleep, go to school, share, take their medicine and get vaccinated. The parents will enjoy the teaching and the interactivity they can gain from reading the book with their children. The books are geared towards children aged 2-6, before elementary/primary school. They will likely be bilingual children whose parents want to encourage the learning of their two current languages. They will also be children whose parents want to teach a language at a young age. Some teachers have also been using the books of the series as a way to teach a second language to children, with themes easy for them to both understand and memorise. WHY SECOND GENERATION? JNPAQUET Books Ltd had been planning a complete relaunch of the popular children’s books series for many months, in what is known as “The Book of The Animals - Second Generation”. The relaunch will see every single existing episode being updated and totally redesigned with new illustrations (and a new illustrator on board!), new texts and some fun-learning quizzes on every page! (for the bilingual books only) This relaunch is mainly aimed at a new generation of little readers and their parents who may, or may not, know the original series, with even more children friendly illustrations and more educational stories, based on the feedback we have received from both children and parents at Author Visits and Storytelling events given in schools, playgroups and libraries across the UK, since the launch of “The Book of The Animals”, in 2008. The “Second Generation” books of the series are still being written by the creator of the series, J.N. PAQUET, and illustrated by Award winner illustrator Lizette Duvenage. The new books will gradually be replacing the old edition with a launch every 3-4 months over the next 15 months.
