Item description for Yackety-Yak the Alien's Back (Adventures in Literacy) by Ruth Thomson & Pie Corbett...
Adventures in Literacy guides children from their first steps in phonics through to independent reading and writing. It is now becoming clear in schools that although the Literacy Strategy has resulted in some improved reading and writing skills, children are still unable to verbally express what they are learning to write. This is increasingly becoming an area of focus by the DFEE and there are currently no books on the market that address these needs directly. The innovative new Speaking and Listening series addresses this vital area enabling children to speak coherently, give directions, make up conversations and compare and contrast objects. Improving communication skills helps children to improve written literacy skills.

My 4 yr old son loves this book! Aug 15, 2007
I checked this book out of the library for my 4 yr old son and he loves it. He wants to read it every night. he especially loves the alien pages/games and the fire breathing dragon story page. It's a very creative books, and gets your kids to think creatively. Very fun book to do together with the grownups.
