Just noticed this on the Mantra site:


The 2006 "Education Show" was held at the NEC in Birmingham,UK. Mantra Lingua's "Little Red Hen and the Grains of Wheat" won the "WOW!" award given by the National Literacy Association (NLA). The book "caught the panel's attention because of its sumptuous illustrations with their determined and joyful appeal which give the familiar text a resonance. Witty, with a juggling cat and a duck on stilts, this will be a favourite in primary classrooms. There is a helpful list of keywords in translation in every edition, so you get a literacy resource for two languages, great for multilingual classroom. Mantra Lingua also won the 2006 EDUCATION RESOURCES AWARD given by BESA for their very innovative "Story Props" range of resources. Story Props work on the basis of extending the learning that can arise for a single story. For example, based on the book "The Buskers of Bremen" the props will include an "interactive literacy" CD Rom for KS1 English, a Board Game, a set of soft toys of characters in the book, an audio CD retelling the story in various language and a big book for whole class teaching. Story props are great for matching various learning styles and extend a simple story to numerous learning uses.
