The books address two key challenges schools and nurseries face:
1. For children with little knowledge of English, instant access to books ensure that they become active learners immediately. They could go through books in their home language - either reading or listening to the text being read aloud.
2. How to include parents of EAL children into the learning environment and become actively involved in their child's education. With e-books that can also be taken home, parents and siblings could read and listen at their own pace.
