Overview

"Cole the Mole" is a lovely illustrated book chock-full of rhymes and assonance (near rhymes) that will make it a pleasure to read aloud. The friendly, bright-eyed protagonist helps kids learn prepositions and phrasal verbs of motion through his brave expedition, and the language, though clearly instructional in intent, is natural and unforced. The book, along with its accompanying section of mini-chants that use the same illustrations and offers a chance for readers to speak aloud, will be particularly appreciated by the parents of children who are growing up bilingually. This little adventure will help kids keep their prepositions straight while vicariously enjoying the courage of Cole.

Meet the Author

After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in English from Carleton University in 1990, Peter entered the field of child-care education. He has completed a Master of Arts degree (TESOL) through Columbia University Teachers College, and his current research has as its focus the benefits of respecting mother tongue (L1) in L2 learning environments. His thesis paper on "Language Revitalization" touches on the importance of respecting all languages regardless of their perceived importance in a "globalized" world. His love for teaching young learners keeps him motivated in his writing and the "Cole the Mole" stories have been dedicated to his two-year old daughter and his supportive wife.
