Reviews

  • Eithne Gallagher and Miranda Walker's attractive and interactive series brings a major contribution to multicultural schools, bilingual families and most of all to the young learners who are fortunate to be growing up with access to such rich language resources. - Terry Haywood, Former Headmaster, The International School of Milan
  • This colourful, child-friendly series provides rich vocabulary and English language development while highlighting the value of learning many languages as well as expertly weaving home language integration into the text. Social-emotional issues such as friendships and transitions are also addressed through these highly-readable stories. - Kerry Girod-Fedhae, Elementary Principal, Marymount International School Rome
  • Byron was described as a monster of languages; well, the Glitterlings can help make language monsters of early learners by tapping into their colossal potential and capacity to learn. Its a resource that promotes world citizenship through diversity, open-mindedness and respect, helping children to develop the linguistic security and identity investment they need to be successful. - John Dabell, Teach Primary Magazine
  • Despite a growing number of bilingual or dual language books for children on the market, very few portray plurilingual characters children can relate to. The polyglot Glitterings are filling this gap while at the same time offering a very motivating approach to learning a new language and to learning about the many languages in the world. - Dr Christine Hélot, Professeure Émérite, Université de Strasbourg
