Alex

I love helping my Mummy and Daddy. Sometimes, I help with the washing up or sweeping crumbs from the floor, and sometimes I help to hang the washing on the line outside. Anna is so funny and she’s always trumping. We have so much fun together, although she sometimes snatches things from me when I’m using them. I often help Anna, but she needs to learn to do things by herself. My favourite sports are football and basketball, and I’m in both teams at school. I love beating Grandpa at football, I won 10 – 0 once. I also enjoy building things with Lego, and drawing and colouring in, and reading. I can play on my computer, but only for a short time each day. I’m really good at literacy and numeracy and my favourite subjects at school are Maths and English. I love school and meeting my friends there. My teacher is funny. I used to go to Beavers, but I’m too old now, so I go to Cub Scouts. I also go to football practice every week. Sometimes, Mummy and Daddy take Anna and me to the cinema, or we go out for a meal. We also go to see animals and birds in zoos, or go to a museum. I’m starting to ride my bike now and sometimes I go for rides with Daddy or Grandpa. I’m going to work hard like my daddy when I grow up, but Auntie Lucy doesn’t want me to grow up yet.  Auntie Lucy is beautiful and when we go out with her and do things we sometimes can’t tell Mummy or Daddy because it’s our secret. We can’t even tell you.

Anna

Hello, I’m Anna and I often try to get my own way. Alex is clever and he sometimes helps me when I copy him. I love my brother even though I sometimes take things from him.
I’m always funny and making people laugh. I love going to nursery school and can’t wait to go to proper school. I taught myself to come out of nappies. I like playing with Alex’s cars and like playing with Lego too. I love my Minnie Mouse dolls and get lots of Minnie Mouse clothes. I’ve got a Minnie Mouse cover on my bed. I love my baby dolls and like pushing them in their buggy. I’ve got a new umbrella. I like playing with my little kitchen and making a cup of tea for everyone.
When Grandpa comes round he pushes me on the swing and I go really high.
I’m good at doing puzzles and I’m trying to learn to write and draw like my brother.
Grandma always sings nursery rhymes to us. Mummy is beautiful and helps us all the time. She tells me off sometimes, but she always tells me why. I love Daddy, he’s the best daddy in the world. And we both love Freddie, our dog, he’s so funny.  

Learn with Alex and Anna books are charming every-day stories for children. Each story is written around a basis of positive family and personal values.

With a mix of fact and fiction the stories encompass topics such as how trees grow, how aeroplanes fly, the importance of honeybees and how going to school is neccessary. Even subjects such as how the brain develops, how to be safe inside and outside of the home, and the importance of adding up are tackled.

In these stories, Alex and Anna are young children. Being young, they are at the stage when they soak everything up around them. Like all young children, they always ask the question why?

With the aid of significant people helping them on their life’s journey, Alex and Anna are duly taught educational subjects whilst learning important life skills in a fun and friendly way.

At the end of each story, there are a number of questions for your child to answer. By answering the questions, the learning and understanding of the story’s subject will be reinforced. Some books may also have instructions for your child to carry out an experiment. This could be a recipe to bake cupcakes, an experiment to understand the water cycle, or asking them to create their own fire drill for the home. These experiments will reinforce the child’s learning by doing.

Alex and Anna hope that through these stories your child will have just as much fun learning as they did whilst growing up. They also hope that your child will be able to discover their own life’s journey.
