Book Description

In this colourful illustrated storybook, part of the School Start series, children with language needs can explore the story of Nik the Ninja, and his disastrous night at Merryville Museum.

School Start Storybooks support language development in reception and Key Stage 1 aged children both in school and at home. Through beautifully illustrated stories, children are invited to explore language, ask questions and recall events in order to aid language development, listening and memory skills. Each book contains a colourful and engaging story designed to appeal to young children, and with language specifically chosen for children with language needs.

Key skills that these books support include:

  • Comprehension
  • Expression
  • Vocabulary
  • Memory
  • Sequencing

Available either as a set or as individual books, the School Start Storybooks are a vital resource for professionals looking to support language development either with individual children, or groups of children. Each book also contains guidance and prompt questions to help the supporting adult use the book effectively, making it ideal for parents to support language development at home.
