Product Description

An exclusive story for ESL Beginners -- combining grammar, literary analysis and vocabulary that works alongside the Oxford Picture Dictionary.

Wombat has eaten the bird's grandmother. Now wombat and the birds have to have an awkward conversation. The birds point out that wombat is a carnivore. Will that be enough to change his mind about eating birds?

About The Series

Beginner English language learners are crying out for stimulating texts to develop their reading and language skills. These texts are hard to find.

Each story and nonfiction article in the series uses vocabulary from one section of the Oxford Picture Dictionary. If you have access to the dictionary, the text pairs with it, enabling you to easily create a multiple day unit of vocabulary work and reading. If you do not have access to the dictionary the text and activities can stand alone. The series of texts introduces literary elements, reading skills, grammar and vocabulary.
