“REALBOOK News grew out of the Editor, Opal Dunn’s, work as a consultant for the Council of Europe on early foreign language learning. Teachers and parents wanted to include REAL-picture-BOOKS as part of their language activities but found it difficult to find what suitable books were available. Each issue introduces over 20 books suitable for children learning to read in English. A regular feature article discusses relevant topics of interest like Reading in a foreign language, Emotional Literacy – reading about feelings, and Developing Visual Literacy. Issue 10, November 2001, celebrating five years of publication, included a special Nursery Supplement for the increasing number of very young children beginning English worldwide.” (Source: Books for Keeps)
