About JaJaJa Books
Calling all parents or grandparents who have sought long and hard for bilingual books specifically aimed at teaching children a foreign language in a fun way - your search is over!
We are delighted to welcome Genevieve Yusuf and her Award winning JaJaJa Books to Acolyte Home & Gifts with the amazing books `Phillip and Felipe Become Best Amigos` and `Lucy and Lucia Play Hide and Seek`.
`Lucy and Lucia Play Hide and Seek` was voted as Book of the Month by Prima Baby & Pregnancy magazine (December 2011 edition) - a ringing endorsement and one which we thoroughly approve of!
Based in Colchester, Genevieve is a full time author and collaborates with Suzanne Wilson who draws the beautiful illustrations for her books.
With a Degree in Linguistics with Spanish, Genevieve taught children as a language teacher for many years and has used her experience to develop these fun and enjoyable stories as a way to teach Spanish to young children using stories which are predominantly written in English and have Spanish vocabulary slipped into context. And with a handy pronunciation guide included in the back of each book, you can make sure that the words are spoken correctly.
`Children learn quicker when they start earlier` says Genevieve.
`They lack inhibition and soak it up like a sponge. However, many bilingual books I researched are very hard to follow for a child and for a parent. I wanted to create something that grabbed children`s interest and to make language learning fun. I`ve seen at first hand bilingual children not noticing as they swop languages when speaking with parents and friends`.
Genevieve Yusuf - author.
Genevieve promotes her books (first published in June 2011) with story time sessions across the country in pre-schools, schools and libraries and enjoys seeing how children react to the concept.
`The little people in my sessions love being shown a new language. When they pick it up so quickly right in front of me, it reminds me why I work so hard and feel so passionate about it.`
