Hi, I’m Oksanna Crawley. Welcome.

After retiring from a career as a kindergarten and reading teacher, I decided to write books for children who were just beginning to read.
I wanted to inspire and motivate children with engaging characters such as a super hero hamster and simple, funny stories.

My Super Hammy books are specially designed to make the teaching and learning of reading easier. Teachers call them levelled books.  They increase in difficulty very gradually. The sentence structures, sight words and vocabulary are carefully controlled.

Super Hammy – My First Reading Series  is for pre-school, kindergarten and grade one. Teachers can use them in the classroom and parents can use them at home.
