CF Educational Services
Novel Studies for Young Readers is the newest division of CF Educational Services (established 1995). It\'s our collection of fun learning activities created by professional Canadian teachers for children 7-11 years of age. They\'re sold as individual resource booklets to accompany each story written by Robert Munsch and illustrated by Michael Martchenko. Munsch is a popular Canadian author of children\'s books. Each resource booklet we\'ve created is based on the theme and content of the story itself. The booklets of suggested activities are designed to enhance the theme and content of the story and might include such things as: a simple card game, some facts the child can use in her “research project”, a silly song to sing, or an exciting board-game to play. One booklet might provide guidance for poetry writing, another one might feature a play to perform through puppets or with friends. Lessons focus on the development of reading, writing, listening and thinking skills. Children love Robert Munsch stories. We hope you and your child will enjoy the products we have to offer to accompany these stories. To be successful, each child needs a copy of the book in her hand! Be sure to buy enough copies of the book - that\'s 1 copy per child or at the least 1 copy between 2 children who enjoy working together.
