A1 Edutainment takes you to the world on an amazing new reading programme with Purple Turtle. The first level of Purple Turtle Graded Readers includes a set of 12 books with interesting stories and activities and 150 word count. This level is exclusively for learners who have just started reading. It is based on ATOS and Lexile reading level system. 
Megan's review

I have to say that description told me absolutely nothing about this set of books. BUT what I found when the box arrived on our doorstep was a refreshing group of itsy bitsy books (yes, they are each only a few pages long) that are extremely simple and easy for beginning readers to tackle. AND, each book comes with adorable activities at the end of each book. They are perfect for little hands and growing minds.

In each book, Purple Turtle goes on some new adventure. He learns about music, helps decorate his friend’s house, and even learns about bugs and counting! No two books in this series are the same. And one of the biggest selling points for me is how they teach kids that it’s fun to help and learn. The morals are spot-on with what I want to be teaching Lady Quinn and Mister Chu. Purple Turtle learns that family and manners are important – great qualities in a children’s book!

Purple Turtle is one of the cutest children’s characters I have seen. I loved the illustrations and how they add so much to the story. Meant for beginner readers, this book doesn’t have many words. So it’s the pictures that really tell the story and convey the messages.


Thank you to Laura Fabiani (iReadBookTours) for letting the Ginger Mom participate in such an inspiring tour for young readers! Thank you to the author, Cari Meister, for creating books that teach children values while also teaching them to enjoy reading! I look forward to seeing Mister Chu and Lady Quinn enjoy these books as they learn to read!
