    A Little Note about Rhyming and Perspective:
    Learning rhyme is a foundational skill and this book provides opportunity to explore rhythm, rhyme and visual perspective. A learner’s ability to recognize words that rhyme will support them as they begin to learn word families later on. A simple word family is the “at” family: bat, cat, hat, mat etc. When a learner can recognize the rhyming sounds, or words, they can begin to anticipate the text. As well, a learner’s ability to understand visual perspective allows them to understand the story line deeper. The visual perspective changes under a magnifying glass.

    Raven and Duck are good friends. They like to play together outside in the summer sun but most of what they do is opposite to the other.

    A Little Note about Opposites:
    Learning opposites is a foundational skill. So many functions of our daily lives are around sorting and categorizing and understanding opposites is a great beginning. As well, knowing what opposites are support a young learner in both comprehension and vocabulary. Understanding a story line that describes something big and something small will support comprehension. With the addition of opposite words in a young learner’s vocabulary, they can now add a description to things. As an example, the beginning stages of use may be the big boat and the small boat. As language progresses it may turn to the large boat and the little boat. At an even deeper progression, it may turn to the humongous boat and the tiny boat.

    Join Raven and Frog as they both count to ten in their own way. Raven teaches one to ten in rhyme and with a focus on number recognition. Frog teaches one to ten with visual supports of number representation.

    A Little Note about Counting:
    Learning to count is a foundational skill and our world is full of numbers. Young learners will learn early on in life that they can have one candy, not ten. In order to support the learning we can teach first what the numbers 1 – 10 look like while counting/naming them. After many practises counting/naming we can then teach the amount of each number. For example, we can show the learners; I can hold one cracker in my left hand and two crackers in my right hand. Last, we can show number representation in a pattern, like the number patterns on dice. Of course, this is only the beginning of discovering that our world is full of math but this is such a great start for any young learner.

    Based on a traditional story, Raven and the Box is a simple story line. With each action that Raven makes you can play along with your own actions.

    A Little Note about Retelling:
    Learning to tell and retell stories is a foundational skill. Oral retells promote comprehension and build vocabulary capacity. This story allows actions to be performed as it is being told. Actions can sometimes support the retelling of a story line. Invite learners and their families to come in and share one of their own traditional family stories.

    Follow Raven as he flies around looking for coloured beads to make a necklace. The beads he finds are different shapes and colours.

    A Little Note about Shapes and Colours:
    Sorting by shapes and colours is a foundational skill. Our world is full of shapes and colours! Young learners strive to make sense of their surroundings and look to identify shapes and colours either in real life or through multimedia. Once learned a young learner can then sort and categorize many things by shape or colour.

    Follow Raven as he introduces each letter of the alphabet! Have fun naming each of the images for each letter.

    A Little Note about the Alphabet:
    Learning the alphabet is a foundational skill and learning through song is a wonderful way to learn! In hopes to eliminate confusion of learning to identify letters, we have typeset the letters in a specific manner. For example, L M N O P is not one letter and for young learners can be mistaken as such if not broken up. As you are singing the song slowly together, pointing at each letter will support young learners significantly. Notice that we pluralize alphabet to indicate there are many kinds.
    Each letter of the alphabet in the book has a corresponding picture. Taking the time to talk about each picture, over several reads, will support building vocabulary. Some of the pictures are from other Raven books to help learners make connections from book to book.
