We're glad you asked, because we have a video, sent to us by Leonie Wood, a Primary School teacher in New South Wales, Australia.
In this video, Leonie explains exactly why her students love to hear the Busy Izzy stories, and what they look forward to when they're about to be read.
"Hi, I'm Leonie, and I'm a Primary school teacher.
As a Primary school teacher I'm always looking for books with interesting story lines.
I really like the Busy Izzy story lines.
Rhyme has also been cleverly used to tell the story in Busy Izzy, which also provides examples of how to use rhyme in written literature.
The Busy Izzy books provide children with a variety of genres, which are great examples that can be used when teaching children about different writing styles.
There are examples of procedures in the healthy recipes that have been included, along with factual information about the content of the stories. Having different written genres allow children to learn about different features of genres that have been included.
I also like the footnotes that have been included.
This exposes children to additional information about the story, and also exposes them to the usage of footnotes.
When I read the Busy Izzy stories to my class, they all had a different character that they liked, and they enjoyed the stories and particularly liked the bright illustrations.
They also love singing along to the songs.
Busy Izzy stories in my class, are stories that are asked to be read over and over again."
Are you ready to dance? Sometimes the best edutainment is the type that makes you want to move!
Coming hot on the heels of My 26 BFFs, is this pacy, energetic online video for children, Busy Izzy Says.
Lots of Busy Izzy's friends tell her that this is their favourite educational video for children to watch. Using big, big letters, the children dance and sing about their twenty six BFFs, their "best friends forever", which are, of course, the 26 letters of the alphabet!
And, the song which the kids are singing, was written by Busy Izzy author, Roxanne Kiely, and her husband, Stephen Kiely, because they want children to know and enjoy their letters, words, sentences and all the fun things that can happen when children become best friends forever with the alphabet.
