Description

A new format for young readers transforms Neepin Auger’s bestselling board books into playful and colourful resources for elementary school children.

Neepin Auger’s colourful board books for infants have collectively sold well over 20,000 copies since they first appeared on the market.

In addition to the English words presented, the French and Cree equivalents are also given, along with pronunciation support, making these some of the most dynamic and useful picture books on the market, perfectly suitable for the classroom, library, and playroom.
