A crime has taken place. A dangerous piece of fruit is somewhere out there and it is up to the police to catch this bad guy. Follow this thrilling story as an Aomori Apple witness tries to pick the criminal fruit from a police lineup. Who is the Abunai Fruit?
This story teaches colours and fruit. The witness gradually helps eliminate colours of the criminal and then a selection of fruit gradually walk free from the lineup, until the culprit is identified.
This has a very simple script and would suit Year 1 to Year 4 as a class role play. Or this can simply be used in any unit on fruit or colours as a supplementary activity/ story.
The ebook is also available to download as a PDF and print off as an exciting reader. Pictures help convey meaning throughout the story. One activity students really enjoy is receiving a copy of the story and following the text and audio with their fingers (whether they can really read the whole sentences or not). This provides the students with a ‘feeling’ of reading by following hiragana and katakana in sentences using the script, pictures and voice cues.

Please note that the script is additionally supplied in romaji and (also romaji with English) to suit teachers who would like to use that to supplement teaching with the eBook. You could use it initially as they learn the story and then try to transfer to the hiragana version, again, so that they get a feel for following the script even if they aren’t necessarily reading it (parents get excited to see this).
Your purchase includes:
1. Downloadable video eBook (where the entire book is read aloud with sound effects etc)
2. eBook (which can be printed off)
3. Romaji and English downloadable scripts versions as supplements to colourful eBook.
I sincerely hope your young students love this book!
