Raising independent learners

Meanwhile, the Geronimo Stilton Academy: Pawbooks goes beyond just featuring its hugely popular title character, Geronimo Stilton, but includes excerpts taken directly from the fa-mouse-ly funny and entertaining stories, which helps encourage children to learn independently.

Students will be able to apply what they have read from the book series to the mouse-xercises in the workbooks together with fun activities at the end of each section that will consolidate what they have learnt.
