“We have been studying the Busy Izzy and Friends books within our literature unit. The stories are full of phonological fun, clever word play and are rich in rhythm and rhyme.

Our students were provided with the opportunity to explore the wonderful world of Busy Izzy through multi-modal means such as an interactive website, drawings, songs and videos. Not only did it do so well in complementing our English learning outcomes, it integrated really well with other key learning areas such as the creative arts, PDHPE content, interpersonal relationship skills and communication.”

- Nazile Keskin, B.Ed M.Ed Head Teacher, Amity College, Prestons, NSW.
