One child has not got a hat on his head. Gus is not happy. Gus is hot! Ladybird Readers is a graded reading series of traditional tales, popular characters, modern stories, and non-fiction, written for young learners of English as a foreign or second language. Beautifully illustrated and carefully written, the series combines the best of Ladybird content with the structured language progression that will help children develop their reading, writing, speaking, listening and critical thinking skills. The five levels of Readers and Activity Books follow the CEFR framework and include language activities that provide preparation for the Cambridge English: Young Learners (YLE) Starters, Movers and Flyers exams. Gus is Hot, a Starter B Activity Book, is ideal for children who are beginning to learn English for the first time. It introduces letter formation and includes listening activities and a phonics chant to aid pronunciation. The gradual progression will allow children to begin reading and writing letters, words and short sentences. It is Pre-A1 in the CEFR framework.
