Happy Talk is a doorway into the playground of early language for 3-5 year olds.
Based on the magic of Adventure Island, Happy Talk is an immersion in wonder, make-believe and the joy of words and sounds. It has been created with the support of a wealth of early childhood educators in my Joy Sessions Patreon group, who have trialled ideas and helped me create something that we believe has real joy at its heart.
Echoing the strands of Letters and Sounds, Happy Talk creates a world of 'Carpet Kingdom' and 'Pop-Up' to embrace both co-play and phases of group time to 'Show, Not Tell'. It is not intended as a replacement for 'phonics' - it is rather a layer of magic that you and your children can adventure into whenever you wish.
What's Included? Happy Talk includes an immersive Guidebook that explores the pedagogy behind its creation and then moves on to offer a treasure trove of 120 ideas for you to bring to your practice. On top of this, Happy Talk also features ten picture e-books each with an audio version to bring the magic of Happy Talk direct to your children and their families. You can discover stories about the Poggle, Bonnie and Eppie, Mish Mash, The Moonpins and even Frank Lemoncurd, all of them exploring the joy of listening, rhyme, sounds and being alive to the joy of the World of Little Things. In addition, you'll also be able to join the online Happy Talk community where you'll be able to share experiences, ask questions and explore the concept even further, for Happy Talk is only the start - there's a whole world following behind it slowly but surely. Your company would be very welcome along the way...
Look out for tickets to my online sessions in the SHOP. They'll be held every month so you can get on board when your'e good and ready - I'll see you there :)
