Worried worms and chatty trees
Anyone would be worried in these circumstances, hanging from the mouth of a hungry bird. But it's all in a good cause.
Our 7-book "I Can Read" series teaches children all the Lao letters. After each book, they need to practice what they've learned before moving on to the next level. In level 5 they've learned, among other things, the vowel "ua", a particularly tricky letter because it can have four different sounds, depending on its location and whether it's paired with another vowel.
To help readers at this level, Phet wrote 31 sentences, each using letters introduced in level 5 (for example, "duang" = "worm"), and illustrated with a humorous cartoon.
