A different approach to stories for new readers
Colorfully-illustrated storybooks make it fun for children to learn to read Lao, and we've published many such books.
This collection of Aesop Fables takes a different approach. Sometimes children use the pictures to invent their own story – which builds up the imagination, but doesn't build up reading skills. Here we've used just a single small picture to introduce each story, so that beginning readers will focus in on the printed words. It's written at level 4 of our "I Can Read!" series, for children who haven't even learned the full Lao alphabet yet.
retold by Bouakao Tor, Kanya and Manita
