Over the past couple of days, the team has been working very hard to write small story books for children just learning to read. The goal is to get as many as 80 small books produced in each of the three languages of the pilot project!
I have been helping them to understand more clearly what makes a good small story book, the type of story needed, the type of wording needed, the type of illustrations needed. With people from the three languages working together, they can often share story books between them, adjusting the wording or illustrations slightly to fit their specific situation. Over the past two days, they have prepared drafts of over 30 stories so far, to add to the more than 20 that they already had!
