Introducing Big Words for Little People

by | Feb 17, 2022 | News, Schools

What does it actually mean to be kind, brave, calm, or happy to a four-year-old? Some words need a child-friendly explanation to help children make sense of the world around them.

Introducing Big Words for Little People, a series of picture books designed to help you talk about the ups and downs of first experiences and new emotions with your child. Created by language experts at Oxford University Press, each book contains carefully chosen feature words to support early years learning and equip children with the language skills to develop and grow. This important series focuses on the words we use to talk about big topics in a way that feels good for little people.

Engaging illustrations, fun characters and flowing rhythm make them perfect to share with young children aged 3+, and each book includes tips and ideas to help you talk about feelings in a gently supportive way.
