Super Hammy is a Youtube Star!

Super Hammy flies on Youtube!

I had a lot of fun visiting the offices of DC Canada Education Publishing in Ottawa recently – the home of Super Hammy – My First Reading Series.
It was a pleasure to meet the talented team behind the Super Hammy project – Mei (the director of publishing), Leonard (Senior Editor) and Mary Ellen who does French translation.  Thank you to Doreen who filmed and edited the video.

Have a look at the video –

 

This is a series of 15 books I’ve written and illustrated that can be used by parents and teachers for children who are just beginning to read, or parents can read them to children who are not yet readers. They’re perfect for preschool, kindergarten and grade one.
They feature a super hero hamster, his friend Little Mouse and bad guy, Bad Cat. The stories are simple and funny. These are the kinds of books I would have loved to use when I was a kindergarten and Reading Recovery teacher.
The books can be purchased individually or as a set through DC Canada Education Publishing.

Using “Super Hammy” to Teach Reading – Made Easy

 

I’ve developed lesson plans for all 15 of my Super Hammy books!  The plans are available free at DC Canada Education Publishing.

I’ve designed the lesson plans for teachers to use but parents can use them at home, too.
