Developed with teachers, Toys (part of the English series) introduces 10 toy vocabulary words in a first reader for young children. With help from the audio narration, children will soon be able to understand and finish this early reader book on their own—giving them confidence and a sense of accomplishment.
The unique Spot Color Immersion Method® weaves vocabulary into this early reader book, making learning English fun and non-intimidating for complete beginners.
Toys includes 10 toy theme vocabulary words, high-frequency words and expressions, and fun phrases and cultural lingo. The Language Together® approach is multi-pronged, using context, simple sentences (one line of text per page), repetition, humor, and visual cues to speed language learning.
The audio narration means that children can independently review the story without pronunciation help from adults.

Toys is for babies and toddlers and for children in preschool and pre-kindergarten.
Kids will keep asking for "Just one more book!" as they laugh and learn with their Language Together friends Claire, Teddy, Mighty Mike, Ernie and Rosie.
"Students love the stories because they are not too long and because pictures are extremely entertaining and clearly assist in the language learning process. Students feel incredibly accomplished after reading and presenting in class what they have learned by reading."
—The NECTFL Review: A Journal for K-16+ Foreign Language Educators (Northeast Conference on the Teaching of Foreign Languages)
