by Emily Ibrahim
55 Unique Words

A perfect first read for language learners!
(See complete description below.)
Edi is a talented elephant, but he is very small. Edi does not want to be talented or small; he wants to be BIG! One day, Edi discovers that a small animal can solve a big problem and that being small is not so horrible after all.
This book is beautifully illustrated by the author herself. Each page contains an original full-size water-color painting, which masterfully depicts Edi’s character and emotions. It is strategically written and illustrated with only 55 unique words and 100 fully illustrated pages! This highly comprehensible reader is absolutely perfect for beginning language learners.
The exceptionally low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for very beginning French students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and French), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire French without even realizing it! Happy reading!
