We are delighted to announce that our -T Set of Clickety Books have won a Practical Pre-School Silver Award.

Here's what the testers said:

"Very easy to use due to the inclusion of the CD, children enjoyed the rhyming aspect of the stories, not too long or short."

"The children loved the illustrations and story in rhyme form. The colouring sheets and masks created a lot of fun."

The -T Set comes with 3 audio CDs, all narrated by Catherine Tate.

Clickety Scoops Another Gold

on .


Primary Teacher Gold Award for the -S set.

Here's what the testers said:

"The children were captured by the illustrations in these books and their funny titles, and thought that they were hilarious! The books and accompanying resources, which are colourful and engaging, are unique and, because of the repetition, the children are able to participate easily in the stories."

"The CD was a great resource and the children loved to listen to it - they particularly liked the introduction to all the characters. There was also a good range of vocab in the text and the books are a good introduction to rhyme and poetry."
