Let's read Portuguese!

Messages to Rosa
These reading books are ideal for children to read to their parents, friends and teachers, putting in the sort of practice that is essential for early reading.

Rosa produces outstanding results helping children to progress with reading and writing in both English and Portuguese - she has a natural empathy with children and a deep understanding of how they learn.

Dear Rosa, I love the look of your books, and I think they will be of great help to young children, in particular those with learning difficulties. I look forward to using them all!

Hello Rosa .. Thank you for you devotion to the smallest ones and for presenting these books ... Many children are going to learn with pleasure their first words in Portuguese. It's so good to help others * Thanks *

Dear Rosa - My children learnt basic Portuguese using these interesting and imaginative books. Your work helped to prepare them for Portuguese school, in a fun and systematic way. The children and I wish you all the best with your books and hope in the near future more children will have access to these wonderful, and interesting books. Kind regards.

Hello Rosa,

I just received an email informing me about your wonderful work. I am the Godmother of children at the SOS Village in Bicesse. You can see my articles on www.pat-westheimer.com

There you will read the latest one about the boy who can't read. But there are many like that at the Village. Where do you live? I would love to meet you some day.

With best regards and respect

Patricia Westheimer

Thank you so much for all of this and all you have given to children all these years.
I am sure Laurinha will love them and they will bring very good memories to her head and heart.

Big kiss with good wishes
