This young child with the red T-shirt and often seen carrying a blue bundle is a young globe-trotter. Girl or boy, as you wish, this friendly and daring character is unnamed and, perhaps, represents the inner child in all of us...
Guided by an insatiable curiosity, this child travels all over the continents in search of adventures and friends. She/he participates directly or indirectly in the action, either as a witness or an actor, always ready to marvel at the treasures that life offers day after day, with a festival of rhymes and assonances (otherwise known as phonics) as the foreground.
This little adventurer travelling around the world and ever present in all the albums of the collection, is meant to be the child reader herself/himself immersed in the world of... phonics!
Phonics can be described as the study of sounds and the way they are pronounced and written,
or as the relationship between the written and the spoken word.
Phonics are useful when learning how to read and write. It involves teaching developing learners how to connect letter patterns and the sounds they make, to decode new written words by sounding them out or listening to someone sounding them out.
Phonics vary greatly from one language to another. They are particularly useful in the study of a foreign language.
