Clickety Books is celebrating after securing a second series on Sony Award winning radio station Fun Kids!
This audio series comes at a time when children literacy is becoming of increasing concern, with communication and language skills now seen by the Government as one of three prime areas for children’s healthy development.
Based on our award winning books, each audio episode is full of repetition, rhythm and rhyme, focusing on a target sound that helps children develop the speech and language skills that are the building blocks for reading and writing. And with each story starring a special character – from Hoot the Tooting Newt to Flossy the Bossy Ostrich – narrated by Rik Mayall, Ronni Ancona and Catherine Tate, the stories make learning fun and easy.
The series will also be truly interactive with free games and puppets available online which kids and parents can download and play with along with each episode.
Anne Ayre, Clickety Books Director, said: "We welcome this opportunity to team up with Fun Kids radio to build on the successful books and CDs we’ve published. Being able to communicate effectively is essential for every child’s well-being and their ability to learn. A child’s vocabulary at age five is one of the best predictors of success at GCSE so our joint mission is to make the challenge of developing speech and language skills fun!"
There are currently 18 episodes scheduled and they will air at 11am daily from Monday 16th April.
