A desktop stage with story prop cards. Each card is designed to initiate discussions, recollections, role-play. “With a multi-ability classroom, I have many options: I tell a story with the desktop Stage (so much easier than big books). If they already know it, such as The Very Hungry Caterpillar, so much the better. Focussing on just the enlarged picture, one page at a time, gets the children talking. And they can’t stop, with a little nudging to explore and question.“ Musicians of Bremen, for example, has one instruction card, which summarises the story with suggested questions for each card, and 7 story prop cards numbered to ensure sequence. “I sometimes mix the cards up, get them to sort out and then play through with their story telling. Recording their voice on PENpal works wonders. Everyone likes hearing their own voice.”

Dual Language Talking Books “The PENpal can be viewed as a potential teacher, helping to provide assistance to students who are working independently, or in small group, student‐directed, literacy centres…” Johnson & Keier (2010) “The children have enjoyed exploring the images as well as exploring the soundscape. Sounds have helped deepen engagement for some children – the noises have supported their recall of their own experiences.” Erica Field, EMAS Rochdale Your PENpal, PENfriend and CRPEN can access not only to 1500+ titles as dual language Board Books, Picture Books, Reference Books, Situational books. Coming soon is Errol’s Garden, an inner city child who starts a communal garden on the condominium roof top. And as always, you can add your voice to each page in the book, in any language. Many of our Talking books have BAME families as main characters

Words make more sense if you experience and feel them.

The ‘Let’s Go….’ Series is about reflecting on everyday scenes or visits, a reinforcement of visual memory with sounds. The illustration on each page is full of sounds!. Touch the bird and hear her call, touch the car and hear “Beep Beep”. But that is not all. Each book is a picture thematic dictionary - touch the object and hear its name spoken, in English or French or Spanish or… in any of 26 languages! And what’s more, you can add your own voice to any sound spot. Use your PEN with this Thematic Picture Dictonary, My Bilingual Talking Dictionary is in English with 35 languages. Each word is hear alone and in context of a sentence. Practice pronunciation with the Record Function. A unique index of talking picture icons in the book for children unable to read English. Price £15 for book and free dual language file for your PEN

Using unique technology, each page is laminated giving children scope to see and hear in minute detail, and re-live their everyday experiences. In the process they build up their vocabulary and speaking skills.


Good evening. I am a special education teacher at Conover School in Conover, North Carolina, USA. Our school has students who range in age from 3 to 22 years old who all qualify for special education due to a severe to profound disability under the IDEA. Three years ago an elementary teacher and I wrote a grant to purchase 6 Pen Pals with some books, flash cards, and labels. Our initial intentions were to teach our students to be independent in reading pre-programmed books and books we adapted to work the technology. We were successful with the original goal. Our students loved the Pen Pals. I have a non-verbal student who became so accustomed to using the Pen Pal that we asked why couldn't we use the device for communication with him. Everyone thought it be impossible. Over a period of a school year this student learned to use the Pen Pal for communication. He can communicate his wants, needs, and answer questions in class using picture cues we have adapted with Mantra Lingua Pen Pal labels. We add new vocabulary to his boards regularly. In fact it has worked so well that his family has purchased one for him to use outside of school that I am going to help program next week. Mantra Lingua Pen Pal has been amazing to increase this student's independence! I wish we had more Pen Pals to use with more of our non-verbal students.

Communication is a key to independence for our students. Thank you for making such a wonderful product that has provided independence in reading and a voice for our students.

Our ‘Kitabu’ ebook library has over 550 titles in English and 37 dual language editions. There are well-known stories, stories from around the world, reference books, and books set in today’s world. eBooks are a great way to improve reading and enjoying books. For dyslexic readers, there is a huge range of books in sans serif (Arial) and for those who specifically want ‘dyslexic friendly fonts’ we have a growing number of titles. We want to encourage reading, not by going through structured reading programmes but through the joy of stories and their telling. Therefore all text is spoken, even in the home language for dual language editions. For dyslexic children, text can be enlarged, and listened to with words highlighted as they are spoken. Every story has a video just to enjoy narration and at the of each book there are flash cards with audio, label the parts, sequence the story, make word picture connections… These activities are designed to succeed and to encourage a love for reading. SENCOs can monitor progress and share notes on any page, suggesting difficult words for Teachers to be aware of. In order to keep prices down, we have adopted a subscription model. Prices range from £2.50/yr and for bulk licences you can select number of users, for how long and get prices instantly.
