Macmillan LanguageHouse has announced the launch of a new children’s series, Take Shape -- the first new kids book to be backed by MLH in 20 years and designed to complement the 2011 primary curriculum in Japan.
Written by Paul A. Davies,Take Shape is a six-level primary series that focuses on real-world themes that creates opportunities for student’s to talk about their own realities and experiences.
According to MLH, the course offers many unique features that set it apart from existing children’s courses on the market, including a complete spelling and phonics program, an integrated picture dictionary, and graded eReaders for each unit included free with each student book
Haruo Ono, Managing Director of Macmillan LanguageHouse, said: “We are truly delighted to add Take Shape to our primary offering. The 2011 changes to the Japan primary curriculum offer educators a special opportunity to layout and strengthen the English foundation that our students will use to build on throughout their education. We are committed to continue providing products that support Japan’s primary educators and inspire young minds on their journey to becoming self-learners.”
Darren Halliday, Sales & Marketing Manager of Macmillan LanguageHouse, said: “Like the Finding Out series, Take Shape is based on a solid phonics and spelling program which are the building blocks to reading and writing competency. Take Shape produces self-learning through relevant real-world topics.”
