Raise children who read for fun.

Our strong believe is that there is no such thing as reluctant readers, only very boring books.
Often the books or readers do not meet the child’s level. They are either too simple or too difficult to read.

We offer anything from picture books for children who cannot read yet, phonic readers for children who start to read and
graded readers for children at their different stages of language acquisition.

The stories are about children’s favorite TV characters or content-based readers about topics that interests children most.

Make yourself comfortable and browse through our ESL (English as Second Language) catalogue.
