A Teacher's Praise

What do teachers think of Busy Izzy?

We're glad you asked, because we have a video, sent to us by Nazile Bright, Head Teacher, Junior school, Amity College, Prestons, Sydney, Australia

  • "The Busy Izzy and Friends books are full of phonological fun and clever wordplay.
  • We have been studying the Busy Izzy books within our literature unit for the past two years.
  • The Busy Izzy and Friends books have been so rich in rhythm and rhyme. 
  • The children love exploring the world of Izzy through interactive opportunities such as the read long CDs, songs, the website and the videos. 
  • Not only did the books do well in complementing our English learning outcomes, but also integrated beautifully with our key learning areas such as the creative arts, PDHPE content, interpersonal relationship skills and communication. 
  • We had so much fun reading the books and can’t wait for the next ‘Busy Izzy’ book to come out.”
  • The healthy activities, the recipes and the sing-a-long songs all serve to increase the children's awareness of vocabulary, safety and social interaction. We were also impressed that Busy Izzy has a garden at the back of her store, Nix & Nax.  She is interested in composting too. Such a Busy Izzy thing to do!

Busy Izzy and Friends Show - Hampden Park Public School

Izzy, Tess, Bobby and Skye (who's a real private-eye) visited with the year one children at Hampden Park Public School on a Tuesday morning in March.

The children, listened, joined in and danced and sang along to every Busy Izzy and Friends song. All the songs in the Busy Izzy and Friends show are written and produced by Roxanne Kiely and Stephen Kiely.

They also helped Busy Izzy carefully water her freshly planted vegetables.  It was a special day for the children as they were there to see Izzy, with the help from her friends, save their local animal shelter.
