The Kinderboekenweek in the Netherlands will take place again from 2-13 October this year and the theme this year is about travelling. It actually is not about travelling to places but about all forms of transport.
The Anglia Step To books First Step, Junior and Primary all have chapters about transport. The Dutch Children’s book highlighted during this period is Andre, Astronautje, written by austronaut Andre Kuipers and Natascha Stenvert. How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers (translated in Dutch as Mijn eigen Ster) is a really good alternative to use in your English class for the youngest ones.
In Roosendaal we will be reading How to Catch a Star in English and Dutch and we are also adding a few more English touches to the local library programme.
