One of the best children's books,
This review is from: The Blue Balloon (Paperback)
I first saw this book while I was at University in England doing a BEd back in the 90's. It was read to us by a primary teacher explaining how she uses it in her classroom. I have been using it ever since with young learners of English as a foreign language. It is fun, easily understood and the children are always excited to see the illustrations and the changes of the blue balloon. I would suggest using some flashcards after you have read the book with the children so that they could put the story in order.
I would highly recommend it for all primary teachers, parents and teachers of English as a foreign language to use.
