A Narrated Book: ‘Pedro Pear’

Listening to a narrated book is a good way to improve understanding and pronunciation.

Books written for children are a good way to start.

This book is one of five I wrote during a series of workshops on story writing for children.

FIVE A DAY HILL ? ?

The UK government likes giving us advice on nutrition. Advice which they usually change every few years! One piece of advice was to eat FIVE pieces of fruit or vegetables A DAY. The characters in this book are fruit and vegetable people. This is why I named their hill, FIVE A DAY HILL. Now I think the Government advice is to eat TEN portions of fruit or veg. a day! So if I rewrote this book I would have to call (name) the hill, TEN A DAY HILL! But it doesn’t sound as nice!

I hope you enjoy the story. There are many more plus art, science and cookery programmes on my English Learning Channel : JumbleFun Channel
