Hats On Top

Hats On Top is a beautifully designed four-level course for very young children. The central characters are the Hat People, a fun and friendly family who guide children through their first encounters with English. Hats On Top is based on the concept that children come to the classroom with a great deal of world knowledge, and has strong links to key development areas and school readiness.

Learning and exploration are supported and extended digitally through the Discovery Disc, where children can play games read interactive stories and dance along with the Hat People to interactive songs. For teachers, there is the Interactive Classroom CD-ROM containing a Digibook version of the Student Book for whole-class presentation, and a new website containing a wealth of resources.
